  • Cranking torsion bar.

    A year or so ago, cant remember , I replaced the torsion bar with an EFS one. Had the torsion bar cranked up about 15mm if I remember rightly. I now think it has dropped a little and want to 'recrank' it.

    My main concern is that I do not want to go too high as to put extra strain on the CV's along with the splitting the CV boots. I know one member here, Steele, has cranked his up to the max, but I dont want to go that far.

    So am open to suggestions; am thinking of another 5-10mm max.

    Cheers

    just leave no less than 15mm from the top bump stop gap, otherwise you'll get bump steer when you go over pot holes etc. This leaves a bit of droop, it's how I run mine and it handles good, found any less and it skates across the road when you hit manholes etc.

    P.s. My bump stops are trimmed too down to 10mm thick, giving me extra playing space

      Hey Allan,

      If you think it's sagged, then you're probably only recranking it back to where you had it originally. Mines been running at max now for a couple of years, and i've only done 1 boot, which was probably an original, so iwasn't worried. You could also spray the boots with silicone spray or similar every now and then to prolong their life..

      Just do it

        Thanks Steele, you are probably right. I have nothing to worry about then, re doing cv's etc, as you do harder stuff than me...

          Oh, and make sure you don't drive around without doing up the second nut on the adjusting bolt, because it leads to a world of suck.
