    Hey, everyone. I’m thinking about installing some warrior shackles and cranking the torsion bars to raise the rear and front 2”. I recently purchased some Rancho RS9000 shocks and would hate to replace them with extended shocks so soon. I don’t do serious off-roading since I’m 2WD, only light trails. But I like the slightly lifted look.

    Has anyone raised their truck 2” and kept the stock length shocks? Thanks for any input.

    Stock length is fine for up to 2" of lift.

    Your not actually changing anything shock wise up front with a TT.

    Rears are fine with or without the sway bar on. You will gain a little droop with it off, and your shocks might max out then, but not with up travel. Your tires will hit the wheel wells first, with one wheel up, the other down. The bump stops will also hit.

    Thanks for the info. The rear sway bar always stays on for me so I should be ok.
