Put the truck on jack stands and put your jack under the lower control arm. unbolt your upper shock mount and upper ball joint and lower your jack...that should unload the torsion bar.

LArge C clamp works....or cut off the "floating" flat end of the threaded rod on a large C clamp to make a homemade unloading tool.
