    Ok, so I park the truck on a even flat surface, measure the original height (write it down) and put the front end on jacks.

    Start out by turning (clockwise) the bolts first time 5 turns. Put truck down, drivers side is higher by 1 inch.

    Do over again, this time turning passenger side another 4 turns. Put truck down, all is even.

    Now, here's the kicker after running the truck, normal driving and plowing the last few days, its back to the original height.

    What now?

    And does anyone know, how many turns does it take to "top out" or raise it to its top height? Do the bolts just tighten up or do they just keep turning?

    Will timbrens raise the truck without turning the tb's?

    Turning the T-bars on the small trucks isn't as effective as it is on the full size trucks Vince as the small T-bars just don't support the weight (or respond to adjustments in order to support the weight) like the full size trucks will. You need a set of Timbrens, but also leave your 4 or 5 turns of adjustment you added in it as well. Then all should be good.
