    Maybe you guys are talking about 2 different PST 1.03 rods. Early straight cast and the newer -20 degree jobs? I know my 340 bars had to be removed with the LCA's hanging free AND turning them even farther down with a huge pipe wrench. Id assume the much stiffer rods would be installed with less of an initial downward deflection if the bar allowed it.

    Ok... Update.

    I lowered the LCA all the way down with the bump stop out, and this is what it looks like. The bump stop is still out.

    @PST what do you think? It looks good to me and it can be raised if necessary for alignment.

      Well, Here's a photo of mine from yesterday. I had installed the 1.03 torsion bars with the LCAs hanging down and in this photo, the adjusters are all the way loose. The rear has brand new ESPO plus 1 inch 6 leaf springs in it and the tires are 295/50/15, 26" tall. I think it sits a little high, overall. Will probably try re-clocking the torsion bars if possible. Then, maybe a lowering block for the rear end... Not at the top of my list right now because there's lots of other things that need to get buttoned up!

      Yep, same thing happened to me. I had to re clock the bar. Pretty quick to do, actually. Just jack it up, pull the bar out, rotate until the next hex and try again. I did one side at a time.

        It does look high like my original install. It’s is easy to re-clock. I have taller tires in the back 28”. My 6 leaf espo springs are “0” stock height.

        What I’m finding is that I may need to get shorter bump stops for the LCAs. I had read in another post that some guys have done this. I may take a sander to mine and flatten the peak out a little (1/4”)
