      look under the truck, if you see coil springs then you have coil springs, if you see no springs and 2 longs bars coming from the control arms those ar your torsion bars

      The rear of the truck has leaf springs…just so were clear.

      Easey way to tell. Look in behind your rt or lt front wheel. Turning the wheel first will help. Look for a very large spring that is in tha shape of a coil. If there is one, you have coil spring suspension. If there is no coil spring, you have torsion bars.

      Torsion bars are long bars that run from your lower controll arm to a crossmember in the middle of the truck. Hope this helps.
