The best way is to place a jack under the front crossmember. this will remove some of the pressure by jacking the truck up.Then under the truck follow the torsion back to the torsion bar crossmember.You will then see a "key" on the end of the bar.There is an adustment bolt at one end of the "key" that if tightened will place more pressure on the bar and will in turn lift the truck.Make sure to make an equal amont of turns for both sides.The best way that I have found is to use a 1/2 inch braker bar and a socket.Then count the # of turns for each.On average it's about 3 turns per inch.Be sure to mark the bar or record the # of turns in case you return the truck to stock. But do not go more than a few inches.Any more than that will cause serious problem's with alingment and premature failure of steering componets.good luck!
