Have these torsion bars being cranked?

Hey, what is the stock torsion setting, I guess, how do I know how much these have being cranked from stock (aprox). Measurement from wheel centre to top of fender of a stock would work for me. Thnaaks

Great site, good info, good guys!

to my understanding, there is no firm stock torsion setting.. it all depends on how they were set at the factory.. just measure the rear from the ground (or center of the rim) to the feneder cut out and do the same for the front....

Should be close to 2 inches difference from front to rear.

Ride height for Ram 1500 4x4: To be performed with vehicle supporting it's own weight & taken on both sides.

1. Measure height from ground line at the centerline of the rear lower control arm bolt front tip.

2. Measure the height from the ground line at the front spindle centerline (Static load radius).

3. Subtract the first measurement from the second measurement. The difference between the two measurements should be 58 mm (2.3 inches) +/-3mm (.12 inches).

4. If value is greater than max. (61 mm), tighten torsion bar.

5. If value is less than min. (55mm), loosen torsion bar.

6. Repeat previous steps until ride height is within specs.

Procedure is also listed in the service manual, Wheel Alignment 2-3.
