Re: [DML] Who has dampening door struts?

Technically speaking, you should never have to make an adjustment on the 
torsion bar, provided the previous owner didn't make any - if it's set at factory 
default, leave it there.  If you're having trouble with your doors not opening 
fully, just get some new struts.  Stabilus is good from the OEM standpoint, 
like if you're going for Concours.  I went with DMCH's struts a couple years 
ago, and the doors open just fine without slamming to the roof - but I don't 
have any door poppers.  
A lot of it also depends on weather - if you live in a very hot locale (South 
Florida, Texas, Arizona, etc) the gas in the struts will expand, and thus, 
have more spring to them, especially when new.  If you live someplace cold, like 
way up North, then the gas in the struts contract, and don't have as much 
push.  But please, leave your torsion bar alone.  I've heard too many horror 
stories of these breaking from seemingly minor adjustments.
