The technician tapped the torsion bar in with a soft hammer. It is important to line up the bar with the opening on the other side; otherwise the bar will simply push the bushing out of the crossmember. A long Phillips screwdriver and an extra set of hands can simplify this process as each end of the torsion bar has a small hole in the center of it. Once the loose end of the bar is close to the bushing on the other side, simply reach in with the screwdriver and pry up slightly on the end of the bar to align it with the opening in the bushing.
