Can I just say here, now, how much I hate torsion bars...what a PIA they are....

Coil overs for the front are soo much easier...

Well, after a long weekend modding shocks, springs, adding airbags, diff drop install, I did the Torsion bars last and was probably a bit tired in the mind.....

I lined up the marks in line with each other, so when I lowered the truck the tires went through the fender walls.....just kidding...not quite that bad but low, low, like a low rider..

Anyway, after a nice laugh with Mr. Antonson, he cleared up my error and all is good. We had a good laugh and it was a breeze from there.

Just have to add the belly plate and lower link boots and wait for a bumper solution...I am getting closer every day....

It will be nice to have a rig ready for the season again soon!:thumb:

Uh, yeah they do. I guess on the heavy cruisers they ride better. They suck on mini trucks. Ride is garbage.

So you are saying there is a very large amount of adjustability of ride height out of a single spring? I don't see how that is a bad thing?

I guess you could SAS and 3 link the front if you want coilovers. :)
