I just purchased some B rated torsion bars and the right one is about 1.25" longer than the left. Does that sound correct?

Thanks,

Tony

I was reading the thread about Ray Lobato's T-bar upgrade this morning and noticed that one was shorter than the other and was wondering about that.

Thanks! I'm feeling much better. I know one has to be stronger than the other due to engine rotation. I just didn't know it was done by length rather than thickness.

I don't think it's an engine rotation issue, I think it's a gas tank/ driver's fat @ss on the same side issue.

I might be wrong though.
 






I'm doing the best I can, I'm on a diet.


That's what the 50yo parts guy told me? He said that was the same cas on 1st gens also.

Yeah, I'm on a diet too, yet my left torsion adjuster bolt is in about an inch farther than the right. Hmmmmm...
