Cranked Torsion Bars

Yes, you IFS-ers, there is low-buck hope: You can adjust the torsion bars slightly for additional height, but make sure you crank them equally on each side. Heavy-duty aftermarket torsion bars won’t lift you any higher than stock ones, but they won’t wear as fast as the stockers. And then there’s that downside--the pros warn of a rough ride, that you’ll wear the steering components, and lose suspension travel, and the alignment will be thrown off.
