I thing that is usually what kept me away from rigs with torsion bar front ends, I had a slammed 1991 s10 with spindles and springs up front and drop leafs and blocks in the back rode good for being lower 6/7 and a mini notch from stock height, but I needed a daily while i build my car

eh i call bullshit on this. if itís done correctly it would probably ride good, not to mention everyoneís definition of harsh is completely different. torsion bars all the way down, yes, itís gonna ride like shit. but if say you did blocks, spindles, hanger re-drill spindles and a little torsion adjustment youíll be gucci. obviously a mini notch would make the rear even better. just depends on what youíre willing to spend. iíll be there soon, iím literally ordering spindles this weekend.

Thanks for starting this thread. I’m in the same boat, as I just acquired my hardbody. As soon as I can get some blocks, I’m going to work on the front end. This site is going to be VERY helpful down the line!

Hows it ride with the leaf removed? Wanting to get my rear lower. will do the hanger redrill and either flip or remove a spring. Doesnt ride bad just stiff as $hit
Maybe even might just buy aftermarket leafs and see what i can do with that

Rides pretty good, just squats with a load in the bed so I may put the leaf back and and do just a 3 inch block and redrill, I just need to mess with it a bit ha but I like it at this ride height
