With all this talk about adjusting the torsion bars does anyone know what the length of the front shocks should be? I have the KYB GR2 shocks and they seem like they are too long. I haven’t measured them, just eyeballing.
Well, I tried the 2″ shorter shocks on my TDr with a cut/rotated lower torsion beam, and they’re too short.  I couldn’t jack the lower shock mount up high enough with my floor jack to bolt them in, without adding additional weight to push the top mount down — so I’m back to using stock length shocks…
