I heard of a device a while ago that enabled a lifted IFS chevy to leave the torsion bar crossmember in its stock location. It worked by replacing the torsion bars i think. Does anyone know oif this product, have any info on it or kno if it is of good quality. I have been bashing my crossmember and it the spacers are starting to get deformed. PLEASE HELP
No not keys, they are like spaced torsion bars. They dont need 2 b cranked. Their is a flat oval metal peice that lowers the 2nd half of the torsion bar it self. It works with a lowered 4 or 6 inch sub frame.
Yea i found them, they really do look to be a waste of money. My new thought is to replace the spacers for my torsion bar crossmember with solid blocks of aluminum (currently they are box tubing that is moving from box shape to daimond shape). Does that sound like a good idea?
Your new spacer idea is the best. A while ago people talked about those relocater deals, and it made a lot of people nervous because instead of twisting the t-bar along the center axis, it sorta twisted it side to side, if that makes sense. So i'd just replace your spacers and build a skid plate on the bottom of the crossmember. good luck!
Ok, then the spacers are my plan. Do you have any idea where i should look for some solid aluminum blocks? And i understand the whole need for a skidplate, but if i add one it will lower my ground clearance even more (that would suck) any idea how to go about doing this without the negative part?
