Default cranking t bars on a 96 f150

Ok I am just trying to level the truck out. First I tried to turn them with the truck on the ground and they wouldn't budge. Does the truck have to be off the ground and does anyone have a pic of what I should be cranking in. Don't wanna be tightening the wrong part.

I don't think a T-bar adjustment is going to help your situation. If the truck is unlevel, you will need to check your radius arm bushings, TTB bushings, ball joints, shocks. If those are all good, then you will need to replace your front springs. The purpose of your t-bar is to keep it from diving during cornering.

If you are talking about Torsion bars, those are found on 97 and newer Ford trucks. I have not messed with those yet and cannot help you with that.

96 and older are coil springs. You can buy wedges to fit in the coils to level it. I imagine that would be the cheapest way. You can get 1" lift/leveling coils as well.
