Re: Torsion bar removal on Chevy Trucks - Question..
When you change to a new set of torsion bars, you do not need to count, or mark the treads( because the new bars will be set different then the old ones) and as far as getting then out. It is very easy to do.
You will need a hyd. jack,Floor jack, and jack stands. Take the set bolts out(all the way out.) Raise the front of the truck(one side at a time is fine) Place a jack under the tensioner on the side that is raised( you may need a block to raise the jack high enough) Place one of the set bolts(the ones you removed from the torsion bar tensioner) head side on the jack, Line it up as you raise the jack with the indentation on the tensioner. Very slowly jack it up until you take all the tension off the torsion bar. Remove the small block and lower the jack. Now remove the torsion bar by driving it forward and removing the tensioner. It is very simple(just use a little common sense) and as always be careful. Good luck and save that $85 for something you can use more then once.
Hope you can understand my directions!
Do what you have to, just get it up! CHEVY 4x4`s
