    Welcome to the club. If you go off-road or drive on bumpy dirt roads I would get Rancho's new shocks for leveled trucks.

    Yeah I could do that, but I really don't want to put that much stress on 19 year old bars

    If you do this, you will have to get the front tires re-aligned, because when you jack the front end up, you change all the angles affecting the tire, because its aligned to be perfectly straight at the height the factory set it at. When you jack the torsion bars, it'll cause excessive wear on the outside of the tire, and I'm not exaggerating when I say excessive.
