RE: [DML] Torsion bar update



You need to qualify that point about a low failure rate.  Low, yes, if
you leave it alone or have a professional adjust it only if absolutely
required.  If your doors are drooping and you adjust the bar, the rate
will rise exponentially.

 

I think its important to point out to newer members on the list that
even considering adjusting your torsion bars should be a last resort.
They don't need periodic adjustment, and can't slip.  The only reason to
mess with a torsion bar is if you know someone else has messed with it
previously.  If your doors droop, its likely not the torsion bars.

Well, I think you guys are crazy to be talking about putting money up
front to preorder an item you will very likely never need to use.? Even
if I had millions of dollars I still would not put up $500 or more to
have a spare part that has an extremely low failure rate.? Every
instance I have heard where a bar broke, it was because it was rubbing
on the hinge or was hit with a drill while repairing the roof seals.? 

This is a lot like having a spare door for your refrigerator.? It really
isn't that big a deal.? Bummer if you need a new one, but it's not like
it costs $5,000 for an OEM bar.? Even if it was $10,000, I would still
see no value to buying a spare. I will take my chances.

I would definately pre order a driver side bar just in
case if the price was reasonable.
