- Just one bolt
- It is easier if you jack the front 1st
- I didn't align mine, but it IS good preventative maintenance whenever you perform ANY adjustments or maintenance of front suspension components.

I have replaced parts as they wear. At 126K miles on my `95, I feel my wear has been more attributed to larger tires and off-set wheels than adjusting the torsion bars.

I have an 04 qc 4.7 and i maxed the bolts with a great deal
of room to spare, its barely past level, not really even
noticable. Reindexed keys are not
always a waste of time and money, im getting more lift with
them than possible with stock, in part due to the right side
hung lower so leveling from side to side held back a bit on
the driver side. Jus my experience.

Shoulda had a 5.9 lol

Does anyone happen to know where I can order or buy
the bolt for tightening the torsion bar key. I broke
mine taking it off to install my lift and now can't
buy one anywhere locally.

I went to the NAPA Auto website and plugged in `95 Dakota (you didn't specify what year/ V-8 or V-6/ etc) then searched for 'torsion bar' and found the below listings:

Part Number: NCP 2647012
or
Part Number: NCP 2647013

Stuff like this usually doesn't pop up on a basic internet search. You have to actually check the various sites...NAPA...O Rielly's...Pep Boys... Autozone,...etc.

Hey my name is Brian, I have a fully stock 96 Dodge
Dakota, I saw a video that said you can adjust your
2 tortion bar bolts underneath the truck, and that
It will give you 2 more inches of lift, do you think
this is a good idea, considering I go mudding
everynow and then? Please list the pro's and con's
of doing this, and please list some suggestions on
how to do it, and the tools needed, ( I heard you
need to jack the truck up before doing it. Thanks
guys.

I hv a 98 Dakota I bought it with like 5" of lift it
has body and torsion keys. Whoever did it cranked
them up all the way and I put upper control arms on
it 3 months ago and just noticed that they are
cracked in the middle near ball joint and the
passenger side hit the shock and broke it. Has
anyone had this problem iam assuming it's because
they are all the way up so it is like 5" on the
front iam going to un crank them a lilbit to see if
it helps I hope it does but please let me know if u
or anyone u know that's had same prob. And where can
I get tubular upper control arms? Thanks
