Default Torsion Cross Bar

Not sure if this is where this goes...

A week ago i was trying to turn around on a narrow road and dropped the front of my truck off a ditch, it banged and bent the torsion cross bar pretty good. The left front is now lower than the rest of the truck. Is replacing this an easy fix? Like a one weekend thing with buddies...There wantin to charge me over $400 to take it in....Thanks,

Travis

torsion cross bar? If you mean just your torsion bar yes it is easy. I don't know if there are any how to's on here but you might look.

If not then there are some on either explorerforums or RF

Hmm, im going look into those. But yeah, its like a cross beam that spans from left to right on the truck. It looks like part of the frame, but the auto shop said the torsion bars "go into" it. It located towards the front...

should be pretty simple to do, and now would be the perfect time for #1 bars and to crank em, if not already cranked

Ok ,found out its not that bad, my suspension got caught on something underneath and it pooped and everythings back to normal. The crossbar underneath is only slightly bent the part thats really bent is just the cover. Im still going to try and fix it but not at the moment. Thanks for the help!!
