Is there anyway to get coilovers in the rear or suspension like in the front on the back? I want to get the rear end from sticking up in the air. I've done the torsion bar thing and thats not low enough, and I've havent gotten a direct answer anywhere.

thank you
SJ

Cool. Did you fix your engine/cam issue to get it running?

Support rear on jacks, remove wheels.

Remove the lockbolt from the tosion tube, it's underneath, right at the end of the tube.

Remove the 3 bolts holding the torsion arm to the trailing arm.

Slide torsion bar out, rotate it one tooth, reinstall.

repeat for other side.




If it drops it too much, you can then use the adjuster bring it back up.
