    Hey guys My buddy told me that to add around a inch or inch and a half lift for free, I could tighten the tortion bar? Is this true? Can anyone tell me how?

    Torsion bars are only on the Big 3 companies... Toyota has always had the strut and coil suspension in the front.

    Yeah the pre-taco pickups could clear 33's with simply torsion keys up front and a little longer shackle in the rear to bring up that saggy ass...
