Removing the torsion bars is usually the toughest part of the job, but here's an easy way: Remove the rear retaining clip as usual from the rear anchor, and then take the nut off the pivot shaft where it goes through the K-member (A). Next take the front nut and bushing off the strut rod (B) where it goes through the "K." Now the entire lower control arm can be levered back, which will push the torsion bar out of the rear anchor. The bar can usually be pulled out of the lower control-arm socket by hand. If it's stuck, separate it with a few hammer taps on the torsion-bar socket of the lower control arm.
