    19mm wrench on the bolt on the bottom of the torsion bar crossmember. tighten em, and it goes up. you'll want to align it after doing so though.

    bolts at the end of the torstion bars(frame end). Look at the crossmember the T-Bars go to and you will see the adjuster bolt. Run them in a little bit. Alternating sides and measuring as you go to get it adjusted nicely side to side and get the height you want. I did it on my 95 K2500 and it made the front end bouncy, but it leveled the front and rear so I didn't care. Agree on the alignment thing.

    My tires wore like crap after I did it on my 95(it messes with all your angles)
