Post Lowering Truck with torsion bar front suspension

I have a Frod Ranger EDGE 4.0L with front torsion bar suspension. People are lowering the front by flipping the torsion bar adjuster over. It looks like it would be fairly easy for someone with experience in this area to fabricate an adjuster that would lower the truck without flipping the existing adjuster. Does anybody have any suggestions? I wan to lower the truck about three inches in the front and still be able to align.

Thanks

it could make your life easy if you buy some lowering springs from your truck.

Torsion bars & springs are the same thing thing---just shaped differently.

Torsion bar cars & trucks with adjusters are very easy to raise and lower
Just turn a bolt

A coil spring is a torsion bar wound up into a cylinder----not so easy to adjust height.
