Re: [DMCForum] Torsion bars - reality


Thanks for the information.

Many earlier posts (going back years now) referred to
the cyrogenic process used in the making of the
torsion bars and inferred that remanufacturing them
would be prohibitively expensive.  Now, it appears
that for a mere $5000 you can produce 12 units.

This raises some questions.  Will these bars be made
in the sames fashion as the originals?  If not, will
they be the same (or better) in lifting ability,
lifespan, etc. etc.

Hope this doesn't strike you as "mouthing off".  It is
simply a sincere attempt at further clarification.
