The front end on my '85 720 4x4 is sagging. Naturaly, I took the truck to a local suspension specialist to have them crank up the torsion bars. They told me that the torsion bars had already been cranked up to the max, and there was nothing I could do but replace the torsion bars. I do not want to do this, however, because it is a very costly fix. I am trying to look into helper springs for independent suspensions utilizing torsion bars. I have heard people say there are helper coils that can go over the shocks, but I have been unsuccesful in finding anything close. I just want to know if there are any helper springs like this available, and if so, where could I get them? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

What you probably have to do is re-index the torsion bars. This is achieved by removing the torsion bars and reinstalling them a couple of splines different, so that the anchor arm of the bar is farther from the frame. This allows you to crank the bars up further.

I think energy suspension makes a poly helper spring spacer or something like that, it might not be them but I know I've seen them! I'll take a look for them in one of my catolgue's when I get home tonight and let you know?
