I'm wanting to level the front of my 04 4wd QC with the back and I'm thinking of doing this by turning the Torsoin Bars, has anyone here done this? I took off the plastic cover between the front crossmember and the bumper and found two big nuts that appear to mount the bars, do these need to be losened before I can turn up the bars? I took the cover off about a month ago when I did my last oil change so I really recall what it looked like, but I do remember on a Nissan I had back in high school there were no nuts where the torsion bars mounted to the front, and if I remember correctly they mounted right into the lower control arm. I'm open to suggestions if anyone has any other ideas.

the adjusters for the torsion bars are on the crossmember under the tranny. you shouldnt have to remove anything to get to them. i did this on my 00 dak and it made the ride noticably stiffer.

Might be a dumb question but to do this you just use a breaker bar for the leverage and tighten em up?

I lifted the front of my 2004 QC 4x4 by tightening the torsion bars. I used a tape messure to make sure I did the side equally, and I used a 1/2" drive ratchet with a 2' pipe on the end for leverage. Worked perfectly. I leveled the truck and it didnt make the ride any harsher from what I could tell.

Thanx guys, I knew the ajustments where done back near the tranny, I just wasn't sure if those front nuts needed to be losened before ajusting. :biggthump
