Icon4 My torsion bar doesn't seem to lift. (2004 Ford Ranger Edge 4x2)

Not sure what's going wrong here or if I'm not doing it right/enough, but after jacking my truck up and tightening the torsion a lot nothing has changed at all. I'm trying to level out the truck so it's not leaning forward.

Did you measure before and after? Are you on level ground?

Yes and it seems like nothing has changed. I've driven up to a parking lot that was more level to take measurements at and nothing has changed. Am I not tightening it enough?

I didn't count, I measured them. I made them both flush to the thing around it. I may have not done it enough but I did what the guy in the video did and his got lifted.

Did you turn the right bolt....? Because if you did, it would have lifted....

And did you turn it in the right direction?

I tightened it and yes, I believe it was the right one. I watched a video on it and it looked exactly the same as the one that was tightened.

do it an equal amount of turns on each side if you crank it up more. measuring the bolt won't really help as one side is already cranked more than the other from the factory
