Question about 1997 Chevrolet K1500
I have a 1997 Chevrolet K1500 z71 with 265/75R16 wheels on it and every time I crank the wheels all the way to one direction, they rub. I was wanting to crank the torsion bars a little bit so that the front sits a little higher. I was wondering how to go about it and how far to crank them. Suggestions would be much appreciated.
Remember if you do five turns on the right side do five turns on the left side.
First, get both front wheels off the ground (jack the truck up from the frame). Look underneath, at the tortion bar and follow it back to the cross member. Recessed inside that cross member is the adjuster. Turn the bolt clockwise to raise truck. After five turns on both bolts let the truck down and see how much space is between the lower control arm and the rubber stopper. You should see about an inch. The upper control arm should not touch the frame and as well, there should be about an inch of space there too.
