    Default cheap at home leveling?

    someone told me i can tighten my torsion bars and it will lift my truck a little over an inch without buying a kit. i heard this can mess up alot of things up front.. and same with the kits.. anyone have any problems with that or with level kits?

    yeah the 08+ are coil over for the 1500's i had to research a bit but 2500+ are TB so yes you can crank them but dont crank them too high 2 1/2" MAX! 3" acn be done but differential spacers are a must....

    If you crank the torsion bars too much the ride will suffer. I cranked my former 2500HD about 2 turns just enough to clear 315's..it did change the ride but not to bad. If you do adjust the tosion bars take it down and get an alignment check . Just my $ .02
