Torsion bars are adjustable. Visit any tire and alignment shop and they will have a small book that shows every car and truck, where to take the measurements, and what those measurements should be.
When you adjust the left side up an inch the right side will go up too about a half inch so you have to keep going from side to side. Turn up both bolts perhaps one or two complete revolutions, bounce the front bumper a few times, then take the measurements. Both sides should be equal and they should be close to the middle of the acceptable range.
You're smart for wanting to make the ride height correct. Even when the numbers on the alignment computer say everything is okay, you will have accelerated tire wear if the suspension height is wrong because it changes the geometry of those parts. Handling is adversely affected too when the height is wrong.
