you want to tighten your torsion bar, not loosen it, if thats what your going to do. i don't think there is a cheap way to lift the IFS.

You sure wont get 4" by tighting your torsion bars more like 3/4" to 1"that is with about 7 turns and the ride will not only be stiff it will make you lose a filling
the cheapest way to get clearance for your tires ( I think that is what you are asking) is a body lift I would save the cash for a true suspension lift IMHO.

hockey puck body lift. seriously, i have heard of people doing it before. they all live in Arkansas, but they have done it before. in my opinion, you should just save up for a suspension lift, it will be much better than a body lift or cranking up the torsion bars.

yep you can do a hockey puck body lift for around $60 count up all of your mounts, buy 3 pucks for each mount go to the hardwear store get some #8 nuts and bolts and bolt everything in place

you might hve to extend your steering shaft and some other brake/clutch hydraulic lines and if you have power steering the lines might be too short so you might need to relocate the resivoir. plus your bumper brackets and stuff will be low still. best of with a suspension lift. alot less crap to move and it performs alot better. fabtech makes a sweet kit. you know they also make fiberglass fenders and bed sides to accomodate the bigger tires.
