ERIC, LOOK AT THE END OF YOUR TORSION BARS. AT THE END SHOULD BE A LARGE BOLT. THIS IS THE AJUSTING BOLT. YOU WILL PROBABLY ONLY BE ABLE TO SEE THE HEAD OF THE BOLT, ALTHOUGH ITS ABOUT 7INCHES LONG. USE 1/2 INCH DRIVE RATCHET WITH A 6 INCH EXTENSION ON IT AND I THINK A 1 1/16 SOCKET AND TURN THESE BOLTS CLOCK WISE OR COUNTER CLOCK WISE DEPENDING ON WEATHER YOU WANT TO RAISE IT OR LOWER IT.THIS AJUSTMENT IS BEST DONE ON A LIFT. BEFORE YOU START THIS MAKE SURE THE AIR PRESSURE IN THE TIRES ARE ALL THE SAME DO THIS JOB ON LEVEL PAVED GROUND, AS YOU WILL BE MEASURING THE HEIGHT OF THE CAR . WHEN I DO THIS JOB I MEASURE FROM THE WHEEL OPENING LIP TO THE GROUND. CHECK THIS MEASUREMENT BEFORE YOU START AS YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW HOW FAR UP OR DOWN YOU ARE GOING. AFTER YOU DO THIS HEIGHT AJUSTMENT YOU SHOULD HAVE THE FRONT END ALIGNED, AND TELL THE ALIGNMENT MECHANIC WHAT YOU DID. THANKS SMITTY
