Hey guys.
Ok, I have a 91 toyota pickup 2wd 22re. I bought it a couple months ago and have a little bit of a problem. It has bigger tires on it, they are 28" and bottom out pretty easily. My truck rides about and inch lower in the front than the back, which i dont like either.

I want to lift the front end 2-3 inches. A tilt so the front is higher than the back would be nice but i wont push it.

Im pretty sure i can do it by adjusting the bolt that holds on the torsion bar. I was reading in another post on how to lower the car using this so thats not what i want to do. Ive looked throught previous posts without much luck...

Money is a HUGE issue here. Being a college student the stuff isnt around in large amounts. So some $700 front suspension lift kit is out of the deal.

This being a 2wd :-( i cant really take it offroading or at least anything serious.

I just want it to stop rubbing on the wheel well!!! ITS SO ANNOYING and its rubbing my tires away.

The rear wheels are fine. Its leaf so no problem there and they have adj holes so i can raise it if i really want.

Any ideas??? THANKS!

If worse comes to worse, and you can't raise the front cheaply...buy new wheels and tires. Could get some steel wheels cheap, and put new tires around.

However, I believe front 2" lift spindles are like 140. Maybe do a SOA on the rear and gain about 2-3 inches there. I don't know much about lifting the 2wds, and these are only things that I think MAY be options in lifting. Some people have some high 2wds around here...

I'd say it would be OK to raise the front some using the torsion bars. just don't get carried away. Bring it up so it is even with the back

I have a 2" drop on my truck and run 26" tires. I also get some rubs. but you've only increased your tires radius by 1" over stock so you should be able to get past the rubs.

Well due to the fact that the front is lower than the back i think either the front end was lowered with the torsion bars or something bad happened.

Ya i thought only 1" bigger wouldnt make a difference either but it does and its embarrassing when i go over a speed bump at 20 and it makes this loud noise. Its even easier when the tires are turned there is literally like and inch of clearance between the wheel wells and the tire with it turned.

How do i do the torsion bars to lift it?

if you want to go 3" get some upper control arms from downey. they're a couple hundy, but a pretty easy way to get 2-3" of lift. the torsion bars will get you an inch or 2 at the most, being safe. to crank them up follow them to where they end on the chassis and turn the 2 nuts
