So I recently replaced the lower control arms in my Suburban. I made sure to mark the orientation of the torsion bar when I took it out of the origional lower arm and put it back in the same orientation in the new one… I get everything put back together, save for retighteneing the bushing bolts (which Im to understand should be done with the vehicle sitting on the ground). And I dropped the suburban down from the jack stands aaaand… my tire sits at about a 20° angle to its counterpart on the rear of the car. Almost as if I’m off by a whole notch on the torsion bar… I’m certain I reinstalled it in the orientation it was in the previous ctrl arm but this looks very wrong… Is there another way to tell if I’m completely off on the torsion bar or if something else could be causing this? I really dont want to putt the whole thing back apart if there’s another possibility as its quite the involved process.
Note: its as if its the angle it sits at is as if the torsion bar were severely OVERtightened, rather than under-tightened, which should be the case considering I havent tightened it yet.
Any help appreciated, thanks.
