Why You Should Not Crank Up The Torsion Bars

It is a common practice to gain an 1" or 2" of lift by cranking up the torsion bars instead of installing a mild lift and here are some reasons why saving a little money now will cost you alot later.
  1. As the ride hieght is increased the distance between the bottom of the uppercontrol arms and thier extension travel stops becomes less and results in a rougher ride.
  2. Decreased extension travel means the suspension cannot fully cycle to absorb bumps and dips. Over time, this topping out causes accelerated upper ball joint wear, front end alignment problems and CV axle-boot wear. The increased operating angles resulting from cranking up the torsion bars is the cause of all these failures.
