Ha, that is what I meant, to do the lower... I already have the upper control arm off.

Any tips I should know when removing the torsion bar? All I have left on the lower control arm is that and the spindle. I just don’t want anything flying off under pressure.

Loosen the bars, make plenty of marks on each end and the adjusters. Put back the same way and you should be fine.

Make sure that your marks on the forward torsion bar anchor and the torsion bar are VERY clear and precise. Maybe tape some places to make some lines and then dust the metal with some paint so you have nice straight lines and several of them so you know the knurls are lined up like they were before.

Count the number of turns that you loosen the torsion bar adjustment bolts so that when you reinstall everything you get your ride height correct.

This is the largest 19mm nut have ever seen! Even my 26mm socket is too small.
