Daystar recommends a certified technician install this system. In addition to these instruction , professional knowledge of disassemble/reassembly procedures as well as post instructions checks must be known. Attempts to install this system without this knowledge and expertise may jeopardize the integrity and/or operating of the vehicle.
Please read all the instructions before beginning the installation. Check the kit hardware against the parts list. Be sure you have all the needed parts and understand where they go. If anything is missing, do not proceed with the installation, call Daystar Products to obtain needed items.

Installation Step:
1. Place the vehicle on a level surface. Prior to beginning, record ride height on each side of the vehicle by measuring from the center of the spindle to a consistent point on the wheel well. Record these measurements for future reference.
2. Put the transmission in Park or 1st gear (manual transmissions) and chock the rear tires.
3. Raise the front of the vehicle using a jack. Raise it enough to completely unload the front suspension. Place a jack stand under each frame rail just behind the lower control arms for the front suspension. Ease the frame down on to the stands, but leave a slight load on the jack as a safety precaution.
4. Verify the front tires are off the ground and that the suspension is unloaded, or at full extension travel.
5. Locate the torsion bar crossmember. There is a bolt on each side of the crossmember that adjusts torsion bar preload. Measure or mark the exposed length of the adjuster bolt for reference during re-assembly. See Figure 1.
6. Position the appropriate torsion bar puller tool on the crossmember. Be sure the top of the puller tool engages the recess present in most crossmembers. Also be sure the lower end of the puller tool engages a recess on the torsion key near the adjuster bolt. See Figure 2.
