    you can crank up the torsion bars (no mods). i dont know if you would be able to do this yourself, like tools and that, or you can just get an appointment at local spring shop and they will do it cheap (at my shop we do it for free)

    Only way I know to get rid of the torsion bars is with a solid front axle, which is quite a bit of work. I don't know if they make it for the full size trucks, but for the S series, Superlift has a 2" lift for the front.. but beware... it will prematurely wear out your front end....

    buddy told me you can buy the bracket (dont know the name) piece where the torsion bars are tightened that is bigger and the 'normal' crank position of this piece makes the truck sit as the factory piece does cranked all the way

    You need to swap in torsion bar keys from a 1/2 ton truck. They will index the torsion bars more to raise the front end without topping out the torsion bar bolts.
