[DML] Re: Torsion bar adjustment



I would research your door situation further before you adjust the 
torsion bars. I spoke to Ed Bernstein a while back and I recall a 
statement he made regarding torsion bar adjustment. "the Torsion bar 
should never need adjusting form factory stock" "Simply buy new 
pistons" I believe he said that evryone believed that torsion bar 
adjustment was the way to fix a low slung door, and actually 
illustrated the torsion bar adjustment methods in DW magazine.
I am fortunate to have a Delorean with very little use, so I am 
unsure of individual situations to comment with clear vision. 
My dad bought two Deloreans brand new, I own one of them. I recall 
as a kid how the doors opned. It is exactly the same way they open 
know after I installed new struts. When the doors open, the door 
will bounce a couple times when fully sprung in warm climate. If 
your doors fly up more harsh, you may want to simply open the door 
and guide it to a slow stop instead of potentially damaging your 
car. The fact your doors open fast is a suggestion it may be right.
