Re: how do I unload my torsion bars

The fullsizechevy pictures are great! In my case I used a jack
with a punch standing on top. After unloading most of the toque
by jacking the front end of the truck up with the tire off the ground, and removing the t-bar adjuster bolts, I positioned the punch to stick in the dimple (red arrow shown
on fullsizechevy pictures) in the key. about 2-3 pumps on the jack
and the key rotates enough to allow you to push/pull
the adjuster cross nut out (don't use your fingers!) with
a stick/ratchet... Then let the jack down. The t-bars slide right out.
