jack the vehicle right up so the wheels are well clear of the floor
place vehicle on lack stands for safety
undo the torsion bar adjuster screw right off
turn the torsion bar with vice grips , stilsons etc until you get as much movement as possible in raising the wheel
slip it in the splines
lower the vehicle then adjust the screw until the vehicle is level
jack the car right up with the wheels off the floor
install the torsion bar with the adjuster bolt unscrewed all the way off
fit the bar and lower the car back onto the floor so that all the weight is on the torsion bar
it should be sitting a bit low at this point
adjust up the adjuster bolt to when it sits level
if there is not enough adjustment the jack up the car again
let the adjuster right off an this time use a pipe wrench ( stiltsons ) to turn the bar against the stop plate a spline then insert it into the housing
this preloads the bar before any adjustment
lower the car and again adjust the bolt
EXTREME CARE AND VEHICLE STANDS SHOULD BE USED AS THE CAR COLLAPSING CAN CRUSH THE PERSON UNDERNEATH
AS the fitment of bull bars to vehicles negates the operation of the air bags , this operation should be left to the experts who have designed the bars to not affect the safety systems of the vehicle . IT may appear expensive but consider what your life is worth if fitted incorrectly.. There are plenty of Off road shops who sell and fit bull bars so talk with them as to how it should be done.
This is a common problem and isn't model specific.
If you take a look under your car you may need car ramps, close to the middle near the shifter. You should see an outlet, chances are this will be packed with road grime and debris. Just get a small poker of some type, star screwdriver or similar and gently probe this bung. Try to remove as much crud as you can.
Make sure you have chocks under your wheels and the vehicle is in park and the handbrake on. If a manual make sure it is in neutral Also good to have a friend in the vehicle with the foot brake on for extra safety and to check if water is still dripping on floor.. Start the engine and run your A/C keep probing until water is dripping freely.
That is it basically, like I said it isn't model specific. The outlet gets full of grime, and the water backs up and spill on to passenger floor.
Your old sway bar made of tubular steel. New sway bar made from solid steel. You have a frame under engine the sway bar attaches too. This frame also supports your engine and trans mounts. Follow frame and there are 4 bolts securing same. Mechanic I watched supported engine underneath. Loosen back bolts though not removed. (please note sway bar has arrow that bar can only go in one direction) This maybe your problem. Attach bar to frame and fitting's. Best if you raise front end and remove both tires. Good luck
With the top up, remove the carpet and panels on the back shelf and at the base of the top. You should see three metal bars running around the base of the top. There are thirteen 10mm nuts that hold these bars on. Remove these (when reapplying, they should be torqued to 70-95 INCH pounds and there is a specific sequence, search the internet for the diagram - I think it was a like via Moss Motors Miata. That's about all I can tell you.
