    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
