    Question Torsion bars

    I know there's a torsion bar flip trick thread already but what I need & want to know is ; If I can just lower my 93 4.3 Vortec 4dr 4x4 by just cranking the torsion bars down & doing a front end alignment without any extra / added wear/tear on my suspension parts??? Noob question but I'm not used to lowering 4x4s or Blazers lol sorry.

    Its not going to do a whole lot, but a little.

    Thanks man ... I don't want a whole lot due to it being a daily but GM has put about 6" of gap between the wheel wells of a stock 4x4 vehicle that can't clear it's own frame in mudholes where 31's go :rolleyes: sooo she needs a lil'lowering :cool: .

    went from 6" stock to 4" with just the bolts removed (which is fine to not have any in right?). I also am riding on the bump stops right now so I am going to remove those & maybe the mounts. According to your posts I should be able to just buy lowering shocks to size, do an alignment & I should be fine right? Thanks again I'm already :D but also considering maybe bagging it later lol.

    it might be partly due to the stock Enkei 235/75/15"s that it came with but idk if that would make a difference :confused: . Anyways .... thanks for the info & glad I done this before I had my alignment done due to the passenger wheel being toed out a little too much. :cool:
