Already have the service specs and Marty's DIY from bearing puller tool info. I recently saw a commercial rental tool for the purpose that was used on a 2006 GMC pickup. Renting would be the better choice for a one off use such as this. Does anyone know if such a tool is compatible with Revcon's torsion bar adjustment?

No reason to. A 2 jaw wheel puller will work just fine. I used one I bought from Sears. It was rated for 10,000 LBS. The 2 jaws hook the edge of the frame, and the screw pushes on the pork chop. Make sure the suspension has no weight on it, so it is fully extended. That part of the job will be much easier than removing the A-frame.
