Question about Nissan Pathfinder
I just bought an '88 navara and the front end is riding rather low. a mechanic told me i just needed to wind up the torsion bars. I've just had a look and it seems that one is wound right up and the other nowhere near as much. Should i go ahead and wind the othe one up until they are equal?
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.
