I've been experiencing a issue involving height related to torsion bars on my 1999 GMC Sierra. I am having trouble determining if it is the driver side torsion bar, or perhaps the driver side lower control arm being worn where the torsion bars sits in it. This issue is non-existent on the passenger side. On the driver side, I removed the torsion bar for some other work I was doing and when I re-installed it in the lower control arm, I noticed the keys were positioned differently literally every way I turned the bar or tilted the lower control arm on the driver side. The keys are the same but on the driver side the torsion key seems to sit lower than the passenger side when installing it making the driver side higher which in turn makes the lower control arm sit lower. This is causing far too much camber on the driver side making turn radius on that side a little sketchy. It is also making my lower control arm make contact with the steering knuckle. The ball joints are all new. Could this be a worn lower control arm, or possibly the torsion bar on the driver side alone? Is there a fix to correct the issue? If anyone has experienced this or can make better sense of it please let me know!
NorEaster posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsAnyone running a 6.5" Lift with 35's OR a 4.5" lift? Anyone have measurements? Wheel well, roof, front/rear bumper? I haven't seen many people discussing their overall heights.
Minnesota Lift Laws? HELP!
Ryan H. posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsHello! I have hit a dead end and am hoping someone on here has some information that will help. I am a manager at a GMC store and we do a ton of accessories including lift kits (Yes, I love my job... ). I need to find a way to keep the trucks legal after they have been lifted. This boils down to a modification to drop the rear bumper or add a bumper to keep it 25" or less. I can't seem to find a solution so please help! Here a link to the MN lift laws: https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/?id=169.73 P.S. If there are any local Troopers on here, do you have any tips on compliance? Thank you in advance for you help! - Ryan
