There called torsion bar mount bushings, and will cost about $34.00 for both of them. Parts Source.

Jack up RH side of truck, crawl under LH side

  • 1 Remove nut from torsion bar mount stud that secures the mount to the cross-member. You'll have to feel for it, you won't be able to see it from below.
  • 2 Remove bottom two bolts. Easy, they're in plain view from below. Now the mount is free.
  • 3 Push up on cross member, remove old mount.
  • 4 Insert new mount - push up on cross member, slip mount in between frame and cross member. Drop hole in cross member over the stud.
  • 5 Loose assemble nut and two bolts. Torque down once other side is done.
Now over to the passenger side
  • 6 Jack up driver side of truck
  • 7 Repeat steps 1 and 2
  • 8 To get the mount out, try pushing up on the cross member, just like the driver side. If it comes out, great. I couldn't get the cross member up high enough on mine. I used a big screwdriver and ripped it out by separating the rubber from the metal plate. It came out in pieces.
  • 9 Install new mount. If you didn't have trouble getting the old one out, you probably won't have a problem getting the new one in. As I said, I did. I couldn't raise the cross member high enough to slip it in. Solution: whack 3/8" off the stud. You'll still have plenty left for the nut.
  • 10 Reinstall nut & bolts, torque down.
  • 11 Remove jack, Torque down drives side.
Good luck. The TRW's are one-piece urethane, (I think) and came with a lifetime guarantee. They'll probably outlast the vehicle.

How do I adjust the torsion bars on my 4wd 1994 toyota pickup?

On the end of the bar in the chassis cross member you will see a cast arm and a big bolt and a lock nut . By undoing the lock nut and turning the bolt you apply extra torsion or less torsion on the rod . I f you do not have enough adjustment in the bolt then jack up the front of the vehicle so that there is no load on the bars . Remove any retaining clips and reposition the cast bar on a different spline . The closer to the cross member means extra torsion on the bar when the vehicle is lowered to the floor. and you can increase that load by screwing in the bolt to push the cast arm away from the cross member.. If you want to raise the vehicle then repeat the jacking steps and use a pair of stilsens ( pipe pliers) and twist the bar away from the cross member before replacing the cast part. That puts load on the bar even before lowering it down and so the body will sit higher. ONE VERY IMPORTANT NOTE USE QUALITY CAR JACKS BEFORE GOING UNDER THE VEHICLE AS THE WORK BEING DONE WILL PULL THE VEHICLE OF THE JACK AND PERSONAL INJURY WILL OCCUR.

I have 2002 f150 and took the torsion bars out and not know to mark the spline the torsion bar has a yellow dot on it but control arm don't how do i get it it back to factory ride

jack up the vehicle around 3 inches so that both wheels are lower than the front cross member. Net install the torsion bars . On the splined lock you will find a locked screw that adds tension to the bar . Set this screw about 1/2 way. Place the splined lock on the bar so that the screw is touching the solid mount part. Lower the vehicle and see where it is sitting. If it is too low then re jack it up higher and re- position the block on the spline one more spline around . lower the vehicle again and check the ride height. Repeat the process until you get to a point where the adjusting the screw will level out the vehicle IF one spile is too high or just a bit too low then the screw should take up the difference. Lock the screw nut when finished

In a 2000 ford expedition does the cross member under the transfer case need to be removed? to take the transfer case out . if so how do I remove the bars attach to it ?

First you need to measure the height from the ground to the frame on each side on level ground. Write those numbers down. If you follow the torsion bars to the crossmember, you will see arms or levers attached to them. Counter clockwise will lower them. Remove the bolts, then the torsion bars then the crossmember.

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.

On a 2002 isuzu trooper 3.5 V6 with auto and 4wheel drive do i need to remove engine to pull oil pan? i have a loud banging in motor and need to check crankshaft & bearings

Yes, you need to pull the engine to remove the oil pan. This requires that you remove the propeller shafts and the third cross member to slide the transmission toward the rear of the vehicle. I suggest you purchase a service manual before you start this process. More than likely the rod bearing for cylinder 1 has failed. This seems to be a common problem with later model 3.5L Trooper engines because the oil pump and oil gallery do not deliver oil as efficiently to the number 1 rod bearing.

1993 toyota truck making popping noise under the cab when driving every now and then

It could be a mount, but I would also check the torsion bars. They have been known to snap. Get under the truck and look for the long bars going from the front suspension to under the cab. Look for any looseness, or clean metal, which would suggest rubbing. If the ride height of the truck seems off, especially side to side, thats a good indicator the torsion bars are either broken or adjusted wrong.
