Torsion Bar Lowering

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Redneck_ranger, Oct 28, 2011.

  1. Alright, my next issue is lowering the torsion bars so that they're at stock height. This will save my hubs, and horrible tire wear when I get my 33s. The only thing is, I wouldn't have the first clue as to what I should do... I know it's a 5/8" socket for the bolt, but which way would I need to go to crank 'em down? And how many times would/should I have to turn the bolts to get back to factory height, without lowering it? Next will be rotating the tires, and fix whatever likes to hum/vibrate in the front end. Be waiting for that thread. Hahahaha

    Jack up the front end make sure the tires are off the ground, turn the bolts counter clock wise, measure the distance from the tire to the upper fender to make sure they are even. Dont forget to align it afterwards

    What would I have to do to align it? Just a front end alignment at a mechanic?
