Torsion bar arrow

Does the arrow on the end

of the torsion bar face the front or back of the truck. Bought used bars and need to install them in the correct direction.

There is no front or back, they're the same on both ends, and no matter how you install them, they will still rotate in the same direction. What matters is left and right, because the torsion bars are not the same length. Hopefully you bought B or 1 code bars because the F bars have a bad tendency of sagging, which I assume is why you're replacing yours. Even the B bars aren't that great.
