    Rancho does not have the quick lift shocks for the dmax or any other brand of shocks. the front of the dmax except the LT model uses torsion bars unlike in the picture above of the rancho which is strut type (suitable for the navara, hilux, strada). you can increase the ground clearance by installing bigger tires 265/75R16.

    so there's no way to increase the ground clearance other than increasing the size of tires?
    how about 18" tires? will this increases the ground clearance significantly?

    it depends on the tire size. putting 18" rims with low profile tires will still result in the same clearance ex 265/60R18 30.7" which is .5" taller clearance than stock. The biggest tire size without major rubbing you can put on stock rims is 265/75R16 which is 31.9" tall and the stock (if not bondock) which is 245/70R16 29.7" which equates to 1" taller ground clearance. you can twist the torsion bar to make it higher but ball joint, tierod life span will suffer.

    so not bec. you increase the size of the wheels, ground clearance will also increase?

    is it possible to replace the torsion bar to increase the ground clearance?
    so what do you do for rear?

    Increasing your tire diameter without lifting your vehicle will surely give you rubbing issues between your tire and fender/wheel wells as well as during cornering.

    You can actually crank up your OEM torsion bar to gain 1.5-2" of lift but cranking it more to gain additional lift will give you harsh ride, impaired steering geometry, misaligned CV joints and stressed out suspension components. Yours is an IFS (independent front suspension) and lifting it requires properly engineered kit to achieve favorable results.

    Yes, It is possible to change stock torsion bars. Specialized 4x4 lift kits offer such and are sold as set (2pcs torsion bars, 4 pcs shocks, 1 pair leaf spring). They are being offered depending on how much lift you want on your rig. Notable brands are Ironman, Old Man Emu (OME), TJM, Tough Dog, etc. Said brands are Made in Australia..

    cheers
