    Dropped 620 sitting on bumpstops

    The torsion bars installed with no preload on them in a fixed position most likely with the truck in the air and the suspension at full droop when you put the truck on the ground the torsion bars twist and creat resistance or spring rate, The adjusters are attached to the torsion bars and as you raise or lower the truck it either increases or decreases twist in the bar and increases or decreases spring rate... thats why when ordering a torsion bar sway bar they give you options in length and wall thickness to get the proper spring rate for your application again it makes sense in my head but im no engineer Clayton

    Torsion bars achive their spring rate by torsional twist (like a torsion bar sway bar keeps the car flat by increasing resistance or spring rate as the bar twist)so YES you would be losing spring rate because your are untwisting the bar... Clayton

    dont forget the battery on the passenger side, when I was prepping my kc for the BMW lights I ran out of room with the battery behind the bucket of the light. so you may have to relocate the battery else where depending on the final depth of your lights. cant wait for these... :D Clayton

    Just an FYI Lithium grease turns into a sticky gunk after about 6 months, when I worked installing suspension at my buddys Mustang shop all the bushing kits came with it so you would think thats the stuff to use, WRONG... we started using synthetic bearing grease and no more issues Clayton

    15x7 +25 wheels

    depends on your struts and tire size it should not be an issue I know that when Troy runs 15x7 +25 on a stock 510 strut he runs a small wheel spacer with a 205-50-15 tire Clayton

    Darrin is a cool guy and somebody I would consider a friend of mine and everyone is intitled to their opinion I feel the same way as him sometimes but I have kinda come to expect that maybe the turn out isnt going to be the best but I go because my friends are there and you never know who or how many people are going to show up... I too have been both disappointed and surprised Clayton

    BURLEIGH's KA 210 sedan build

    Depends on the spline count on the axles, cant remember if they are the same as a wagon or like the trucks I am contacting a couple people about the lockers for the trucks (I have one in my KC and love it) I want to set up another gear set with a locker for future swap possiblities, I will let you know more after I hear back from them Clayton
