    Hello,
    A friend was helping me lower my 1989 Mazda B2200 and we put 4inch lowering blocks in the rear. But when we got to the front we noticed we had torsion bars so we torqued them down as far as we could go and it only lowered my truck about 1/2 inch. So my question is what do I need to do to lower my front end? any help would be appreciated.
    Thankyou,

    i think the best solution would be....dont lower it. kinda takes away from the use of a truck, but hey, it's what you want, i've never lowered anything, so i'm not sure

    you have to pull the tortions out and rotate them to go lower. it is a very simple process

    Awe leave him alone. Everyone has a right to do whatever they want with theri truck, I dont care for them but it doesnt mean it shouldnt be done,. As for lowering it, I have no clue, never lowered anything before. i usually go the other way with it.
