A buddy of mine narrowed a beam bout 5 inches... anyhow i've got the new torsion rods, and new bearings but i'm not super positive on how to throw this on i know that you have to narrow the leaves and dimple something but i couldn't find any posts with any in depth installation guidlines. To the point- If someone in the san francisco bay area knows how to do this and would like to help me out i'd be willing to put down some money and maybe even a few cold beers. I could even drive to you if you're confident enough that I could drive it home... haha

If you have new torsion "rods", those are the leaves that need to be shortened and dimpled.
