« on: 18:35, Fri 04 March 2011 »

2.is there a bar each side or just one?
3.do i turn it clockwise or anti clockwise to lower and has anyone got an idea how much one turn per mm lower it goes?

1. I used an old piece of exhaust, large washers and threaded bar.  Screw the threaded bar into the torsion bar, slip the exhaust and washer over it and then tighten a nut onto it and it will draw it out. Hard to put in writing i know.

2. There is a bar each side.

3. Remove the bar so its free, raise/lower the rear arm to the position you want then keep twisting the bar until it slides make in. No need to adjust one spline at a time, that sounds like the Peugoet way.
