Default 4wd question

right now i have the torsion bar adjuster loosened all the than snugged.. i want to be lower.. what happens if i remove the torsion bar? am i stuck with only a three inch drop? my truck has 4" blocks in the rear and all that weight comes out to like a 5-6 inch drop for the rear.. i have stiff coil overs so i don't bottom out and it really doesn't ride bad.. corners very nice

Take out the torsion bars... That would drop the front end for sure, but you would be riding on the bump stops. The torsion bars are the spring in the suspension, you do not remove them without significant work.
