Removal

1. CAUTION:
The air suspension system must be disabled prior to lifting the vehicle. Failure to do so can result in unexpected inflation or deflation of the air suspension system.

If equipped, turn the air suspension switch (right kick panel) to the OFF position.

2. Raise the vehicle on a hoist. For additional information, refer to Section 100-02 .

3. Apply a liberal amount of penetrating oil to the torsion bar adjuster and to the torsion bar socket at the lower control arm.

4. Make preliminary adjustment references.

1 Mark the relation of the torsion bars to crossmember support.

2 Measure and record the torsion bar adjuster bolt lengths.

5. Relieve the torsion bar tension.

1 Remove the torsion bar adjuster bolt.

2 Install the special tools T96T-5310 A and T95T-5310 A on the crossmember support and to the torsion bar adjuster.

3 Tighten the special tool until the torsion bar adjuster lifts off the adjuster nut.

4 Remove the torsion bar adjuster nut.

5 Remove the special tool.

N Repeat on the opposite side.

6. Remove the retainers from the torsion bar crossmember support.

7. Position the torsion bar crossmember support rearward and remove the torsion bar adjusting bracket.

8. Position the torsion bar rearward and separate it from the lower control arm. Position the torsion bar forward and remove the bar.

Installation

1. Position the torsion bar to the vehicle and install the bar to the lower control arm.

2. Reposition the torsion bar crossmember support. Install the torsion bar adjusting brackets to the torsion bars.

3. Install the crossmember support retaining bolts.

4. Load the torsion bar.

1 Install special tools T95T-5310 A and T96T-5310 A on the crossmember support and to the torsion bar adjuster.

2 Tighten the special tool to load the torsion bar.

3 Install the torsion bar adjuster nuts.

4 Loosely install the torsion bar adjuster bolt.

5 Remove the special tools.

N Repeat on the opposite side.

5. Turn the torsion bar adjusters until the reference marks on the torsion bars and crossmember support align. Measure the torsion bar adjuster bolt lengths. The measurement must equal the measurement taken during Removal, Step 4.

6. Lower the hoist.

7. Check the ride height. Adjust as necessary. For additional information, refer to the procedure in this section.

8. Check the wheel alignment. Adjust as necessary. For additional information, refer to Section 204-00 .

9. If equipped, turn on the air suspension system.

No personal experience but these are the instructions given for my 98 F150 4X4. Hope it helps.

Good luck and let us know. :)
