    @colestelter You have started FIVE "lowering" threads in one week. Please don't start any more on the same subject. To prevent confusion I have merged your five threads into two. Combined threads are sorted by date and time posted. Apologies for posts seemingly out of order.

    03 explorer torsion bars

    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...
