At the end of the torsion bar back by the transfer case should be a metal piece with a bolt going stright up through it when you tighten this bolt inwards the tension is increased, let me know how you make out.

How do i remove yhe lower control arm on a 2008 Nissan Frontier 3.0l turbo diesel?


You need to loosen the torsion bar adjusting bolts until all the tension is removed, remember to mark a reference point from bar to frame so you can get close to the correct riding height after reassembly. Can't tell if you split the ball joint from the knuckle from your explanation but a couple of good solid whacks to the lower knuckle will unlock it. Mark & remove the control arm bushing bolts and use a pry bar to push out arm @ bushings.

My Front left tire is tilted inward and underneath the truck i found one of the support bars that run's across is broken off on the left side. I looked around the wheel and found that no metal was bent so...


General Description
The front suspension allows each wheel to compensate for changes in the road surface without affecting the opposite wheel. Each wheel independently connects to the frame with a steering knuckle, ball joint assemblies, and upper and lower control arms.
The control arms specifically allow the steering knuckles to move in a three-dimensional arc. Two tie rods connect to steering arms on the knuckles and an intermediate rod. These operate the front wheels.
The two-wheel drive vehicles have coil chassis springs. These springs are mounted between the spring housings on the frame and the lower control arms. Double, direct acting shock absorbers are inside the coil springs. The coil springs attach to the lower control arms and offer ride control.
The upper part of each shock absorber extends through the upper control arm frame bracket. This bracket has two grommets, two grommet retainers, and a nut.
A spring stabilizer shaft controls the side roll of the front suspension. This shaft is mounted in rubber bushings that are held by brackets to the frame side rails. The ends of the stabilizer shaft connect to the lower control arms with link bolts. Rubber grommets isolate these link bolts. Rubber bushings attach the upper control arm to a cross shaft. Frame brackets bolt the cross shaft.
A ball joint assembly is riveted to the outer end of the upper control arm. A rubber spring in the control arm assures that the ball seats properly in the socket. A castellated nut and a cotter pin join the steering knuckle to the upper ball joint.
The inner ends of the lower control arm have pressed-in bushings. The bolts pass through the bushings and join the arm to the frame. The lower ball joint assembly is a press fit in the lower control arm and attaches to the steering knuckle with a castellated nut and a cotter pin.
Ball socket assemblies have rubber grease seals. These seals prevent entry of moisture and dirt and damage to the bearing surfaces.
Four-wheel drive models have a front suspension that consists of the control arms, a stabilizer bar, a shock absorber, and right and left torsion bars. The torsion bars replace the conventional coil springs. The lower control arm attaches to the front end of the torsion bar. The rear end of the torsion bar mounts on an adjustable arm at the crossmember. This arm adjustment controls the vehicle trim height.
Two-wheel drive vehicles have tapered roller sheel bearings. These bearings are adjustible and need lubrication.
Four-wheel drive models and RWD Utilities have sealed front-wheel bearings. These bearings are pre-adjusted and need no lubrication.
Heat treatment may create darkened areas on the bearing assembly. This discoloration does not signal a need for replacement.
Hope this helps?

How do we adjust a torsion bar to the a-arms


This not that simple Your tortion bars are must have some distortion at this point being a 2000 you will need to estamate some what but it can be done To tighen the tention you adjust the anchor arm bolts at the rear of the bar one on each side you also need a mesurment in the front take some string and strech it tight across the front end wheel to wheel at the bottom of the ball joints for your referance point the lower joint The vehicle should be on flat level ground Tighten the anchor arm bolts one at a time measure the distance from the top of the thearded end of the adjuster bolt to thepoint where it rides on the adjusted bracket then measure the distanct from the center of the bar front to the string when this distance is vary close the suspension should work fine Rember you may have to tighten one bar more then the other to get this but have to take into account bar distorition from years of use good luck

How do I adjusk front tortion bars to lower front


the pros doing a front end alignment do just that
if done by yourself the wheel alignment will be really bad and out of whack for sure
the setting for degrees must be exact or very close

Torsion Bar Adjustment


Remember if you do five turns on the right side do five turns on the left side.
First, get both front wheels off the ground (jack the truck up from the frame). Look underneath, at the tortion bar and follow it back to the cross member. Recessed inside that cross member is the adjuster. Turn the bolt clockwise to raise truck. After five turns on both bolts let the truck down and see how much space is between the lower control arm and the rubber stopper. You should see about an inch. The upper control arm should not touch the frame and as well, there should be about an inch of space there too.

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:http://www.superlift.com/instructions/3146.pdf .

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.
