upgrading torsion bars?

i was reading a thread on an explorer forum that discussed this. basically that certain vehicles came with different rated torsion bars ( while have similar suspension design). any info on a "stiffer" bar for a ranger that would produce similar lift as a "torsion bar crank" but without over stressing the bar itself with said cranking?

they didn't really come to a solid answer but seemed to think a sport trac bar is stiffer then explorer bar. any actual info anywhere about various bars and spring rates?

I believe you should be able to find that info on TheRangerStation.com

I know I've "heard" people discussing that and I know the Torsion bar has a spring(?) number that is included in the door sticker so once you know what you're after it should be fairly straight forward...

Just some dude from BC...
