I have a Nissan 2 wheel drive and it leans to the right in the front. I looked for a spring that could be worn or broken and it only has a torsion bar. The upper and lower bushings look a little loose. Is this the problem?:crying::frown:

2001 Nissan 2 Wheel Drive Crew Cab Front has no coil over shock or springs in the front (Looks like just a standard shock) and looks like only the torsion bar connects to the control arm via a long bolt with bushings at the top to connect torsion bar and to the control arm with only a short spacer and cups that hold the rubber bushing Nissan Part Number 08912-7401A

Should not cost much to bring to an Alignment Shop and have thrown up on the rack and let them tell you what is wrong...

If nothing is wrong and it is just sag, you can crank the torsion bars and get more lift. One of the benefits of T-bars.

Old toyotas had torsion bar springs too. I think in the 90s they started going to coils
Toyota Tech: Upgrading Torsion Bars

A torsion bar spring is the most efficient. Even a coil spring is essentially a torsion bar spring that is wound up. If you paint lines on a coil spring and watch it compress it will actually twist.

Older Chevy's had t-bars too. However one thing they teach you about t-bars is that you should only load them in pure torsion. NO BENDING. The chevy's put the t-bar a couple of inches down from the pivot o the lower control arm, thus there was bending and twisting. Bad for the t-bar thus they had to play with the sizing for durability that affected the ride.
