Re: [DML] Torsion bar update

I won't take the time to go back and count posts but I think in my seven  
years on this list I could count the number of people with a suddenly broken bar  
on one hand.  It would be interesting to know how many of them were due to  
unsafe adjustments.  There are only two posts I can solidly remember  reading 
about which dealt with a sudden bar failure.  In one case, a guy  just closed 
his door and put his car in gear the thing cracked right above his  head.  He 
was uninjured and it caused minor damage to the T-panel and  spider cage.
More people need left front fenders than they do torsion bars.

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.
