It is the scariest thing you will do on your car, yet with the right tool and method it is remarkably simple and fast. You can easily install both of your torsion bars in 5 minutes!
I have written instructions below, but I actually demonstrate the installation in this video:
- Safety glass: duh
- Face shield: I don't want that thing hitting my face if it snaps back
- Ear plugs: if the bar snaps out it is LOUD
|This tool made out of a piece of 1/8" steel flat bar will make this job very simple. It is the same tool used by Ford. They are available for sale online or you can make one yourself, which is what I did.|
|This is the plan for how to make the tool.|
|The tool fits onto the end of the torsion bar as shown.|
