Torsion bar adjustment?

Hello everyone,this is my first time posting but I read alot on here and find this forum very helpful. Anyway I have 2003 astro awd ls and I am looking to level the front end to the rear and was wondering are the torsion bars adjustible or do I need to replace them. I have seen adjusting keys but dont really know how they work. I would like to get the front end up 1 - 2 inches if I can. Any input would be great. Thank you, Mike

lift kit

Thank you. I was wondering about torsion bar adjustment because I have pics of the van when it was new and it sat much higher in the front than it does now. Seems to me something has worn in the front end like the torsion bars? Do you think new torsion bars would bring it back to like new ride height or no? If I have to I will get the lift blocks from overland but i`m not really looking to modify it that much just bring it back to what it was. Mike

Torsion bars do weaken over time. Jack it back up to where you think it should be. Probably no more than an inch and then get it realigned.
