[DML] Re: Torsion bar adjustment

Byron - You may not have noticed the intent of this thread, but Ryan 
is actually installing new struts, and is assuming that the PO 
(previous owner) had adjusted the torsion bars in the past, rather 
than installing new struts.  So, with his new struts, he finds that 
the doors have too much energy.  Ryan also has remote door openers, 
so being there every time to guide the doors open would take 
something away from the utility of the remote operation.  Ed is 
probably right in that the torsion bars should not require frequent 
periodic adjustment when set properly for a new set of struts.  The 
reality is that people will naturally want to save some money by 
adjusting things like this, rather than buying new parts, when 
tooling and help is available.  I have not touched my torsion bars 
for nearly 8 years (1997) because they were adjusted for a very good 
set of struts that are still in there and working perfectly.
