Comments recommending a search of previous posts lead to a post dated 10 8 21 that was exactly what was needed. I tried using a half inch carriage bolt but ran into a problem with the bolt interfering with the fresh air duct. Started over, removed the battery tray, washer bottle bracket, and air tube. While doing this noticed that the carriage bolt had bent, (eccentric load). Purchased a spring compressor to use as per post. The first time using this setup broke side of the spring compressor hook, same as before, off center load. Second try made sure load was as straight as possible. Worked just fine. Original pin fell out, and there was enough space to accept a four-grove pin. Ride height difference went from about two inches to about one-half inch. I can live with that. Once again thanks to the “experts” input from the forum. Happy
