One ear was bent a full 180 and even with heat it is breaking. For longevity, a replacement is probably in order.

Is this arm the same across the 2wd d21 chassis as well?

Finally got it out. Thank you guys for the help. We will see if heat and such will make this think right again.

Awesome. I was thinking there had to be something else I was missing. Thank you for the great photo view.

So havent had much time to work on it but i was out last night looking. Ive got the splines moving out of the front but its only moved about an inch or so. Not wanting to budge anymore. The 2 nuts where the bar splines in up front are loose to help release any tension. Am i missang a circlip or something? I dont see anything else holding it from moving but i may be overlooking a snapring or something. Idk of thats only in 4wds or not. Mine is 2wd

Hey guys, 

 

One of the 2 720 pickups I bought was lowered as far as it can be lowered via blocks and a torsion arm adjustment. I wanted to raise it some to make it a little more ideal to work on. I got under the truck and found the passenger side bracket where the adjuster bolt was bent beyond all repair. Is this a part that can be gotten individually and maybe new? Or is a used torsion bar my best bet?
