Re: '58 Torsion bars thanks

Carter, a word of caution re your torsion bars and transmission mount! (From and old Chrysler suspension engineer) Those torsion bar adjusting bolts are in TENSION. (Not like the 65 that is in compression.) If they break during adjustment or any other time - the upper piece can fly upward, penetrate the floor and anything else in the way. The lower piece sometimes will go down and damage any part of you in the way! BE CAREFUL. Also on old cars with rusty or weakened frames when you take the cross member out it is sometimes very difficult to get it back. (This is a problem I had on one of my Furys) Good luck /JZY
