You can uncrank the torsion bars to lower the front end of the truck to gain some access to the bolts on the upper bump stops, but my preference is to get a knife in there and just cut half of those off. It allows the suspension to travel downward further and/or allows you to crank the torsion bars further to boost the front end up higher. Just don't cut so much that the bolt heads hit metal when the suspension flexes. It's noisy, annoying and makes the ride rough, ask me how I know.
