Re: [DML] Re: Driver Side Torsion Unit


Then do you also agree that it is bad to have a bar installed the way the Byrne suggested?  That's all any of us have been saying all along:  Putting a bar in to compensate for the strut, no matter who the manufacturer, is a bad idea and will eventually cause other problems.  I think we are just surprised that Byrne, as a vendor,would even suggest doing so.

If Byrne's bar still works at the level of originally-designed tension, I see no problem with it.

I agree turning the bar up higher (tighter) to overcome a weak strut is bad and that struts are cheap, torsion bars and hinges are not. I also agree that if struts date-stamped sometime in the mid-80s and door actually works, that the bar is probably turned up too high to compensate for a weak strut. However, I'm not sure that all of this would be true with a bar that has a different/new design from the original.
