Re: Question about HD torsion bars

no matter what you do, changing the angle from the axle flange to the spindle is going to cause extra wear on a CV joint. The HD torsion bars are effective because they change the spring rate to soak up more of the bump and won't let you bottom out as fast.

Any new torsion bar set up is going to be higher than your stock application (assuming you set the bolts to the same point as stock). They will, in time, settle a little bit and will give you a better, stiffer ride...

I had the bars on my old '90 Toyota and they were great. I'm sure that the CV were about to go, but for the time being they "NEVER" made me bottom out, and I rode that truck pretty hard... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
