my truck is getting that 100k sag to the front just put 265's on today headed in in mornin for alignment my buddy said we can turn the bars up some and get the sag out but dont want truck level because of the loads i pull some times


guess what im after is what will 3-4 full turns of the bolts do or should we go 2-3 turns dont need the lift to clear tires just want the sag and a little height back

looks good with the 265's but will lookl better when front is back rite

thanks justin

I would measure the fenderwell height and then adjust the bolts a couple turns and remeasure. To adjust them I find it best to take the weight off the suspension, adjust, set the truck back down and jounce it. Then check the fender height again.

Mines on 265s also turned mine up 2 turns and its almost level so i would say 2 would do u just fine

Eight full turns gave mine exactly 2". I would deduce that 4 full turns should give you 1".

I marked my bolt and made a mark on the cross member to correspond to it, just in case a wrench/socket slipped off the bolt.

I also measured mine; front and back; ground to top of fender well. I left my back about 1/2" higher.
Hope this helps

I went like 8 turns and the bolt is far from being all the way in. It didn't really do much to the height of mine but w/ puttin my plow on and off and using it she is starting to sag. Still in the same spot and the truck looks like its lower than stock in front. I have my 265's rub now!...


4" lift will fix that right up

Wow the truck looks great with the bars cranked! I honestly cant say I agree with them up the hole way. You will have increased wear in the front suspention parts. But, looks good! :cool:
