Default Lowered... Finally

3 inch blocks, removed middle leaf and bumpstops in the rear and a slight torsion bar crank up front, new shocks in the future as mine are pretty old

93 kingcab with 99 frontier 15inch wheels. I find the rear looks lower than front. I am considering lowering the front without getting too radical, but afraid of ruining ride or tearing up tires needlessly. Any advice? How far can I go with torsion adjustment before trouble?

So my truck is down 20 turns on the torsion bars up front and it still has a decent ride quality. It was sitting on bumpstops up front which made it stiff but yesterday I cut those in half until I can't cut the bolt to fully remove the bumpstops

As you can see I have about 1 1/4 inches of threads left on the torsion bar bolt, and if I remove the bumpstop "housing" then I would get probably another inch or so and have about 2 inches of clearance up front

get some universal Low profile button head bump stop for the front. the only thing you will have to do is redrill the mounting holes. more clearance more cushion.
