Torsion Bar indexing

I have the rear end of the car totally tore apart and am about to put in the new torsion bars. Has anyone ever done this, and how were you able to index the torsion bars. I understand the concept behind it, but from what I read the only real way to get the ride height perfect is trial and error. This is not a fun way to do it. If anyone has some hints, they would be greatly appreciated so I do not have to pull this tube in and out 3 more times. Thanks.

Not like anyone cares, since only 5 people have viewed this but me, but this might help some other people. I put in my bars at the factory setting. (I have 28mm, factory is 23). With those at factory settings my car sits about 3 inches too high. I think dropping it 9 degrees 50 minutes will get rid of it, I will do that tomorrow. So if anyone does their torsion bars, I hope this helps.

I have not done the procedure, but have read some posts about it.

Here is a interesting one.

Good luck.

Good job zehnd, that like was useful. The excel spreadsheet was great. I wish I had that last night, but now I should be able to get it right. Thanks for helping me out.
