Replacement Torsion bars?

Does anyone know where I can find a listing for replacement torsion bars from my 2003 Chevy Silverado? I am planning on when I put my lift kit on to replace my torsion bars with heavier duty ones to compensate for my winter plow. Any help would be great!

Re: Replacement Torsion bars?

If they would fit, and I don't know if they would, a set of torsion bars off a 2500HD would be the ideal setup. Your best bet for some of those would be on a totaled one... Good luck finding one though. Some lift companies are bound to make them. I'd check with your favorite lift manufacturer.

Re: Replacement Torsion bars?

I don't remember, is your '03 a 1500 or 2500? If it's a 1500 I think the only option for heavier bars are 1500 Z71 bars I don't think the ones from 2500s and up will fit a 1500.

EDIT-

But then I could be totally wrong... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/owned1.gif[/img]

My 03 is a Silverado Z71 1500.

So I may not have any other options other than weight the back of the truck when the plow is on.
