it is a perfectly acceptable way to lift the truck and will hold up, the torsion bar bolts are on the frame back from the wheels, just follow the t-bars and you will find the bolts, and as long as you have some patience, and the right tools you shouldnt have too much trouble doing this job

How far back from the wheels are the torsion bar bolts? if i start from the frame connecting to the front wheel and move inwards how far inwards am i going? 1-2 ft? also is it the only large bolt there? don't want to get it confused with something else.
I was just under my truck and found two possible bolts. the one i think it is, is facing directly towards the ground and is a tad further towards the front of the truck off the frame from the wheels. is this correct? Anyone have a picture of the torsion bar bolt and ots surroundings so i can get a good look at it?
also this just hit me now. I'm in a state where we have 5-6 months of snow (Minnesota) and there is a lot of rust on the bolts will this give me a problem? or will WD-40/liquid wrench take care of this?
so its a little further towards the rear of the car? just a little bit from where the wheels are? i'll go take another look. and i'm assuming these are gonna be large 5/8-3/4 inch by 6 inch bolts? not some small thin little ones with small hex heads?
Alright thanks man! I'm gonna go take another look under my truck. I'll try to take a video or a couple pictures of it underneath there and I'll post it to this thread. then you guys can tell me if i found it.
I don't know if i will be able to do it tonight though. possibly tomorrow morning. or else I'll make a fresh thread for it.
