Re: [FWDLK] Torqued off



After you pack the rear torsion bar socket with grease you can make a seal out of close line to hold the grease in and the water out..

The original reason that the bars broke was corrosion at the rear socket due to salt build-up in the winter.  Chrysler didn't catch that it would be a problem during the first year of production.  Time was a factor.  As soon as they realized what was happening, a rubber bushing/seal was installed, and the problem went away, as far as I know.

i have a feeling the bars that break had a production flaw that just needed enought stress to allow failure-   at 50+ yrs old now- if they didnt break yet- i'd say youre safe.  the trick may be constant use- spring steel has memory but dormancy may also raise the risk factor- as other "springs" do sag without use or with overloading.
