  1. Ok, I reindexed each side. Left side (driver's side) went clockwise ONE click, and Right side (passenger side) went counter clockwise one click. I tightened both side to get the tires even. However, the left torsion bar is significantly tighter than the right in order to match height and even out the camber. Is that normal? If not, is it possible one side needed 2 clicks and the other just one? Thanks.
  2. They were $12.39 each with free shipping on Amazon Prime.
  3. I appreciate the message of using caution when ordering parts. Glad it worked out this time. I will post an image to the Amazon site so others are aware.
  4. The part came in. I have a black Polyurethane set to compare the "OEM" new rubber ones too. Hope this is useful.
  5. I found these. https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Genuine-Nissan-Cover-Dust-Torsion-Bar-Front-540332S400-54033-2S400-OEM-/124279455738?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
  6. Thanks! Any idea where I can find new torsion bar dust covers? One of mine was missing and the other disintegrated when I removed it.
  7. OK, just want to make sure I do this right. I loosen the adjusting nuts first.How much do I loosen it, or do I remove it? Then I remove the boot and C ring. I mark the location so that I know where I am starting from. I pull the bar away from the control arms. I rotate the bar two clicks and re install the bar into the control arms. I reinstall the boot and the c ring. Then, how much do I tighten the adjusting nut? Thanks!
  8. As always, thank you for your help MIke.
  9. Thank you SO much! This is great help.
  10. Hi all, I recently added a “ball joint lift” and a rear “Add-A-Leaf” to my 1984 Nissan 720 Sunrader. It is 2WD and I just needed about a 2 ½ inch lift. The ball joint lifts are 1”, but I am supposed to reindexand adjust the torsion bar for the other 1.5 inches of lift. What I wanted to ask is do I turn the torsion bar clockwise or counter-clockwise if I am facing the front of the truck? Also is it just one spline or 2 (or more) that would allow me to get to the 1.5” inches? I could not find the info I was looking for, but this post was very helpful: https://r
  11. Hey Everyone, I Just wanted to post an update. I ordered the OEM NIssan bushings from Amazon. Everything else I found at my local parts stores which are NAPA, Autozone, O'reiley's and Parts Authority oly had the blue Polyurethane. So I will post a photo of the part once it arrives. This was the link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00F66U526/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Thanks for all the helpful responses.
  12. Thank you everyone. This is immensely helpful!
  13. Hi, I needed help identifying what this rod that goes from the lower control arm to the front of the radiator support frame is. I wanted to replace the rubber bushings on it, but not sure what part it is exactly. Thanks.
  14. Also, thanks to datzenmike for making the connection on here.
