How do you go about doing a torsion twist? I am getting 2"-2.5" add-a-leafs for the rear of my rig and I see that every one is doing TT lifts to the front! I was wondering how difficult it is to do a TT lift or if I should even do one to begin with? If anyone has any comments of ideas they will be graciously accepted and seriously contemplated. Thanks - Nate

Thanks for the answers, guys! I now know what I am going to do to my X. I am getting ProComp add-a-feafs for the rear and doing a TT to the front. Someone contacted me at my SoundDomain site to give me some advise and I am taking it. Later - Nate

how much to turn the bolts depends onhthe vehicles current specs... there is no way t osay turn bolt 10 turns tight... ther procedure is listed here on this site.. you will find it with a search. you will need to take actual before and after vehicle measurements
