I cut and turned my front end on my 69 baja and I guess went a little too far.It's still sitting on stock wheels and tires and the front sits a 1/2" higher than the back.I took 3 torsion bars out of the top and three bars out of the bottom and i'm afraid to take out anymore as to weaken it too much.Any suggestions how to level things out?.

I wouldn't be removing leaves. Just pick a different spot and cut and turn it back.
