Hi there,

Thank you for the donation,

About the only thing to do is increase the spring rates and go for a big bore shocker, but this will result is a more truck like ride, there are a few variants in shocks and springs that you can get, its just a matter of finding the right combination that suits you, talk to a suspension specialist they may be able to get you a ride in one that has been modified so you know what it will feel like.

Hi there,

Ok take two, sorry I should have realized that it was a torsion bar set up, well this dose make things a bit more difficult as I don't think that there are any other settings available, you can still go with the big bore shockers or even unadjustable, I would still seek the advice of your local suspension shop, as they may have other options for you, I will still do some home work and I will post here if I come up with anything of interest.

Thanks mark. I have been trying to look into a few things also. All I come up with is bigger shock.

But just never thought of contacting my local suspension shop. We have a good amount of them around here.

And will keep a look out for another post here
