Default this is what happened the next day after the tbar tweak


Day after the tbar tweak I did the body lift and noticed my passenger side cv boot already came off I had band clamps waiting,thankfully.

I also noticed when I'm driving I hear a lot more noise from the torsion bars under articulation,which makes sense because they are under more stress.they may have to break in to the adjustment

Some others were saying the ride was too stiff after the tweak but I like it a lot more than stock.
