I have a bone stock 1980 Luv. I have used lowering blocks in the back and have also used a 2" spacer between the lower ball joint and the lower control arm to add a little drop but retain spring rate on my torsion bars. With these spacers in the front I am now experiencing toe in. My tie-rods seems to be non adjustable so correcting this looks to be a problem. Thinking about removing the spacers and just reindexing the t-bars to get the ride height needed but have the spring rate to accommodate a LS engine. I guess my main questions are 1.) How can I correct the toe in and 2.) would reindexing be a better option? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Your best bet is to reindex the torsion bars..

Thanks so much for the advice. I think I'm going to ditch the spacers and reindex and also modify my strut bar for ground clearance. Very similar to the way that the Junkyard Jewel was done in Truck Trend. Ill post step by step build pics when I start the work.
