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

SOURCE: torsion bars
Hello, the torsion bars on toyotas especially the 4 wheel drives can sag over time and I have seen them break also. Matter of fact I had a 4runner break one three times. They were all new. Just the type of roads we have in the good ole USA. Thank you

SOURCE: want to change torsion bar keys
The torsion keys are supposed to give 2-3" additional drop vs.the "free" method. I know adjusting the torsion bars kills the ride but how bad is it and how far can you go???
Believe, 15/16 socket would be the correct size. Also, be aware that they are probably pretty rusted and VERY hard to turn at first. Air tools do no good, so you'll need a 1/2" drive breaker bar and a long pole to put on the end. This is the fastest way to get the torque you need to break those suckers loose.
I suggest measure and writing down the height about 3-5 spots on each side, whether it be the frame, body, or whatever. Crank each side a few FULL thread turns, then measure again. Once you get about the height you want, measure both side to make sure they're equal. After that, it's best to get a full alignment as some of the suspension will now be at different angles (of course).

SOURCE: how to adjust a torsion bar
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.
