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.

    I didn't mark the torsion bar when I took it out, how do I install it without the marks

    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

    2006 hyandai sonata, does it have greese fittings

    Often mysterious squeaks are from dry torsion bars bushings. There are two of them mounted to the engine "sub frame." My wife's Ford Focus has this issue as well. It squeaks when driving ove rthe curb onto the driveway. The solution is to unbolt the two hold-down clamps that secure the torsion bar to the subframe then apply soime silicone grease inside the rubber bushing so that the rubber will no longer "grab" when the torsion bar moves.

    I have this 4 Runner that is leaning about 1" to

    Adjustment is made by way of the torsion bar adjuster at the rear of the torsion bar(arrowed) :


    I would advise that you visit an alignment shop because as soon as you adjust the height it affects other variables on the setup such as the camber angle for one thing. You may also want to investigate the reason for the sag.

    Right front is down and has a rattle could it be a strut

    The Jimmy has no strut, they run on torsion bars. The torsion bar mount bushings may have gone bad or broke and needs to be replaced, you can pick up the torsion bar mount bushing at most large auto parts store like Auto Zone and i believe there around $40.00 each and the will have the step by step instructions to get the job done with common tools. The torsion bar mounts are about mid way down the jimmy just about where the drivers and passenger door is under the frame and they are adjustable.

    To properly adjust your torsion bars, you need to find your "Z" height.First, park the truck on a level surface and measure the height betweenthe ground and the bottom of the knuckle (next to where the lower balljoint's nut is). This is measurement "A". Then, measure between levelground and the center of the rear most lower control arm bolt. This ismeasurement "B". "B" - "A" = "Z" and "Z" should be between 4.6 inchesand 5.2 inches. We just lifted a 2001 2 dr. blazer 6" with a super-liftkit. All angles and measurements stay in factory specifications andwhen you are done you set the torsion bars to factory specifications. Ihad to adjust my "Z" height last week to factory specifications andfollowed the directions and picture on page 21 and 22 here: .

    drop blocks in the rear, and I recommend drop spindles in the front, and new shocks. You may also drop the front through torsion bar adjustment. The bad thing with torsion bar adjustment is very harsh ride. Hopefully this helps

    Torsion bars

    I'm going to use the torsion bar crossmember as the reference point.Laying behind the torsion bar crossmember on your stomach,looking squarely at and across the crossmember,the adjusters that the torsion bars slip into,want to as level as possible from left to right,or right to left in relation to the crossmember.Insert the torsion bar in the front anchor point,on the lower control arm,take it on through so that you can raise the rear up,and bring it on back to the rear anchor,now,look at where it should slip through with the rear adjusters about level.bring the torsion bar on back and engage the rear adjuster/anchor point.Should be it.

    Torsion bar install on 1966 valiant

    The torsion bar itself does not have to be indexed,it can be installed in any way,but the end that contains the adjuster has to be positioned in the correct way to attain full adjustment,and correct ride height.The best way to do this is to look and study carefully before removal,so that everything is reinstalled as it was.If that wasn't done in the beginning before removal,it's still ok as the torsion bars can be removed and replaced,trial and error style,until it's right.The thing that changes where the ride height is,is WHERE the adjuster end is,when the torsion bar is fitted to it.I have a 73 Plymouth with torsion bars,so i know what you are going through.Just position both adjuster ends about level when engaging the torsion bars into them.They should slip in relatively easy unless rusted up badly.It is ok to use some grease too,to allow easier install.Their is also a tool available that grasps the torsion bar to assist in removal or install.After install,make sure to replace the retainer clips back in to secure the bars.
