No the torsion bar if you look at it where it goes to the under carriage it will have a bolt for tension on each side. Are you tring to replace the bushings for the torsion bar? If so answer back.

they do not use torsion bars on those is probably the sway bar you're talking about.if it's the front one they are pretty tough to need to lower the front sub-frame to replace the sway bar.

SOURCE: how to adjust a torsion bar

Step 1 Jack up the vehicle on the wheel to be adjusted, and set the frame rail onto a jack stand. This is to release the stress on the torsion bar so it can be adjusted easily.

  • Step 2 Crawl underneath the vehicle and locate the torsion bar mount on the frame. There will be a bolt in the center of the mount, pointing upward. This is the adjusting bolt, and it will accommodate a large-sized socket driver.
  • Step 3 Adjust the torsion bar. Turning the adjustment bolt clockwise will tighten it, raising the amount of load that can be placed on the bar. This will raise the vehicle when it is taken off the jack stand. Turning it counterclockwise will lower the available spring rate and cause the car to sit lower. Turning it too far in either direction can cause problems, so follow the specific vehicle's manufacturer guidelines when making wide adjustments. Normally, only one full turn will be enough to give the desired result.
  • Step 4 Lower the vehicle, and check the clearances of the frame to the ground. They should be the same for both sides. If they are not, then more adjustment will be necessary to the torsion bar adjustment bolts.

    Just replaced my front shocks last week, but when jacking up rear tires, front shocks dropped to touching the tires again, any others problems?

    Are these air shocks? If they are, then the extra weight on the front wheels can push air past the "O" ring in the inlet air fitting.

    Need instructions on how to install rear air shocks on a 1965 Cheverolet truck

    Reasonably easy to install. Remove the old shocks and replace them with the air shocks. Place the hose fittings where they won't run into anything. Attach the hoses and run them to the rear bumper. attach both lines to the "t" fitting supplied in the hose kit. find a hole in the underside of the rear bumper (or drill one) and mount the "t".Fill the shocks to around 40psi and check all your connections with soapy water to make sure they don't leak. Secure the lines to the chassis so they don't hang down and you are finished! One note. The fittings do not need to be super tight. the small "o" rings in the kit are pretty fat and usually seal pretty well hand tight. On a truck, generally you don't need to jack it up to do the job. If you do, take care not to raise it so far the wheels hang as the rear can drop when you disconnect the shocks.
    It won't fall out but even a drop of several inches can hurt if your head is under there!!

    You can get a decent pair of gas charged shocks or monroe load leveler shocks (if they are available for your car) However, it's likely that the rear springs have sagged. You can easily replace them with either oem or a stronger variable rate spring.
