[DML] Torsion bar adjustment



I need to loosen my torsion bars. I put new struts on and boy, the
doors fly. Previous owner must have cranked them up big time. Since
I'm 4 hours away from the nearest torsion bar expert (that I know of),
I'm going to buy/build the stuff, grab a buddy and do this in my
garage. Tomorrow.

I've watched this done and I mostly understand the procedure and
potential liabilities. I just need some questions answered:

1. Where can I find a template for building the wood thing at the back
of the car? I've seen this before but of course, didn't save it.

2. Which size bit, and how long should my extensions be?

3. Do I need to prop the doors up and remove the lift struts, or can I
perform this with the doors open & the struts on? My plan is simply to
loosen one notch at a time, put the bolts back in and test the door.

4. While I'm here, I'd like to get a good door prop rod. I've seen
these sold by our vendors but if I need to prop the doors up tomorrow,
I'm going to have to find something locally. Any ideas on what I
should be looking for? If not, I'll make do with something else and
order one from a vendor for next time.

Any other tips or bits of advice would be welcome as well.

Thank you!

-Ryan
