Default Front Torsion Lift


I have a 2007 H3. I would like to level the front with the rear of the truck. How high do I need to lift the front end? I am looking to do this via the torsion bars. Iíve read that I should put shocks on after doing this. As such, I am also looking for recommendations as to the shocks I should use after I raise the front end. Thank you for your help!!!

I can see this is your first post so I will be easy on you.

PLEASE, use the "SEARCH" function at the top of EVERY HF page.
Type in "Torsion" "Bar" "Adjustment" "Crank" and 100s if not 1000s of posts on this will appear.

Welcome to HF.

You do not need to put shocks on just because you adjusted the T Bars for lifting the front. If you need more info on shocks, search that and then ask questions as there are a bazillion threads on that topic as well.

Max height is 23.5" from fender lip to hub center, so you can tighten the T Bars any amount you want up to that 23.5".

Take a breeze through this FAQ thread.... keep in mind that 23.5" mark.... this FAQ threads is old and people started breaking chit any higher than that over time.
