Yes you do have to remove the bars or at least the torsion bar cross member and to do that you either need the otc tool or use a two jaw puller make sure to measure the bolt height before you start and set it the same they control your ride height

Its a pain. You first have to drop the torsion bars under the truck. Then get a pulley puller and push the torsion bars back up to remove the metal pieces holding the torsion bars in. Remove the puller and take the torsion bars off. You will then need to remove the bracket holding the torsion bars. ONce that is done, you will have enough clearance to drop the tranny. The hard part is getting the torsion bars back on. Come to think of it, I think you can buy a tool from Ford to pull the torsion bars off. It pretty expensive that why I use a pully puller. Not all F-150s have torsion bars. Buy a Chilton Repair Manual for your correct year. It'll tell you everything step by step.
