I was looking at swaping my torsion bars for heavier rated ones cause right now they wont crank to give me a lift. I believe I have "F" rated torsion bars and I can get "B" rated ones from the delership for $70 a piece. Has anyone ever changed out there torsion bars and was it hard or easy? And was it a long process? I plan on doing the work my self with some help of some friends.
Zach i did it the same way Alon is describing it when i did my SL. In fact I had a ten year old boy help me put the t-bars back up! The tension is very very slight at full droop with the shocks disconnected, but just use your gut instinct when you do it...ie if you feel like youre gonna get smacked in the melon with the t-bar, then dont mess with it.
yeah drop them shocks and it should allow them to droop further....if not, lower the front of the LCA to the ground first, you should be able to control the tension with your arms....at least i would hope.... but i never had any troubles with removing mine...so
