I am putting an ARB Bull bar on my 98 and replacing the T-bars with OME for support. My question is after putting the T-bars in and the ARB will my front end up higher than my back end if i dont replace the springs in the rear?

I will eventually replace the rear springs but in the meantime i want it level.

No, it'll be right where it was, maybe a little lower with the weight of the bar. Once you start cranking on the anchor bolt is when you get lift.

i had the OEM bars cranked to level the truck out. Then slapped the ARB on and it only drooped about 1/2 inch. I just hope the body shop knows how to put the OME t-bars in correctly..

the springrate of the bars doesnt determine the height, its where you adjust it to. The OME bars just support more weight
good stuff......

hurry up and get the f back so we can put the rear springs in..

Shoulda gone to OK4WD. They'd done it aight.

Wait, does this mean you might wheel again? :confused:
i would have liked to go there, but this was my only option for the moment. However, i am sure if they f it up i will be able to fix it..........hopefully.


wheeling....i am ready. Although i need sliders next
