Re: [DML] Broken torsion bar

This was debated in the past,and from what I remember it was..Doors 
closed,as it is not worth it for critters to nest and ruin your 
interior,Plus you are now putting long term stress on your roof and 
metal roof cage and hindges,and doors and struts,not to mention it 
would be hard to put your car cover on.If your torsion bars are still 
the orignal and have lasted this is safe to say you will be 
getting quite a few more years out of them.Most cases of torsion bars 
snapping are usually related to roof problems(rusted or warped or 
stress cracked cages)or bad hindges or chipped/damaged bars or over 
torqued bars.If you have none of the above and your doors close 
fine,then you really have nothing much to worry about,just inspect 
your bars once in a while,and you should be just fine. 

Hope that helps
