    From my understanding, based off of posts on this site torsion bars can both lower and heighten your ride by about 2" safely. Now I have seen some posts say all you need is a wrench/socket wrench while others mention specific tools like Arm-08. My questions are as follows:
    1. Do torsion bars only come in the front of a vehicle?(or is it just uncommon to do it to the back, I've heard very little)
    2. Is it a specific tool, a wrench, or both?
    3. I heard that lifting your ride too high could damage your CVS and put extra strain on the bars themselves, are there any cons to me lowering my explorer 2-2.5"?
    Thanks for the help.

    Thank you for that, I had looked at two of those though, they don't give much insight to cons of lowering my 2wd explorer, everyone is just interested in lifting their vehicles
