I understood the torsion bars had to be shorter to match the beam but thought that I could cut an inch off each side with a cut off saw or grinder. What I was hoping was that someone could help me understand the need for “narrow tie rods”. Had to go back and check the site when Paul questioned the “narrow ball joints”. Should have checked before I posted.
Back to torsion bars, as I want to dampen the ride by removing some of the leaves can not see paying for complete set of new leaves for top and bottom and then discard half of them The detente they show in the pic of torsion bar about an inch from the end I suspect can be duplicated with a drill albeit do not know how hard the leaves are and what problems may be encountered This this an issue?
