Subject: Torsion bar cranked, safe height|
2003 4.7 4x4 Quad
Hey guys, so I just mounted up some BFG KO2's in 265/75/16's (31.6 dia), and have cranked my torsion bars a bit to clear some minor fender rubbing. Pretty sure they were sagging before, so not really sure where the stock height really was to begin with.
Top of fender is still an inch lower than the rear. So, still slightly raked and not exactly 'level'. The height is fine for me and helped with the clearance, but I'm curious if the front axle/cv angles are still within normal tolerances. Really don't wanna lunch my cv's.
I'm about an inch off the front bumpstops. FWIW.
What's the stock difference in rear height, 2 inches?
Truck suspension is stock, other than Bilsteins shocks, which probably add 1/4" of height.

i have 2in block on the back and i cranked them up
until i had about a half in rake and it put to much
strain on my ball joints and caused the upper ball
joint to fail while i was driving that just happend
a couple days ago so i think after i replace all my
ball joints im going to put a 1in block and level
it. very lucky i was going slow it also broke my cv
axle tie rod end and lower ball joint after it made
my wheel fall off to the side and skid down the
