Well it depends how you want to adjust it, if you want to lower it, back out the screw on the torsion key a couple of turns. raise, screw it in a couple of turns

How do I get my 1997 Nissan d21 4x4 pickup torsion bars adjusted back to normal

You will probably find a how-to video on youtube.

Mostly it is a matter of setting the suspension to a specified distance as per manufacturer's instructions and then sliding the torsion bar into the splines.

Sometimes there is a trim height adjustment for fine adjustment after the vehicle is back on the wheels.

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.

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.

Took torsion bars off kept them in the crossmember and when i went to put them on I had no weight on the front and tightened the bolts half way and let the truck down and it sank to the bump stops its a 95...

Did you put the adjuster back at where they were before you disassembled it? Are you sure it wasn't on the bumper stops to begin with ? Does it look like the ride height is lower than it was ? If everything is together the way it should be and you have the adjusters at there max adjustment then your torsion bars are probably shot.

I want lower the truck about 2"

If you lower the front by using the torsion bars the front end camber is going to be to negative. They make kits to lower cars, lower spindles keeping the steering geometry ok. In the long run i believe it is better to buy a kit and do it right.

88 nissan navara torsion bars need adjusting

yes, wind the pair up so the front end is sitting at the same height both left & right, usually 10mm lower than the rear, use the sil of the vehicle as a measure against the ground.
You will need a 22mm high impact socket with an air gun, use plenty lubricant on the threads as they get very hot when winding them up and down. before you wind the nuts up take the load off the bars to make it easier.
some times you may need to remove the whole torsion bar and turn within the splines to gain more height as they can loose there tension over a peroid of time.
don't forget to do a wheel alignement afterwards as this will cause a change in measurements.
Good luck.

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.
