Trying to find out why my front end has this slight shimmy. Found out that my torsion bars were already wound up tight. No wonder it rides so rough. I backed them off just a bit. Made a world of difference to the ride but not much to the shimmy. Moved left front tire to rear and will take it for another ride in the morning.

My right torsion bar looks bent or at least it touches the top of the hole in the lower a arm when up on a jack but the left one stays centered. Isn't affecting the alignment any though.

Worked on wife's Beetle most of the day. Why does Volkswagon have to make simple things so difficult??

Contemplated on selling the ranger and going full size for more cab space, bed room, and better mpg

Polished 3/4 wheels (thank you cliffrat) with my favorite polish Supra 90. And color matched my insurance policy, my pintle hitch. The hitch isnt assembles yet, I want it to cure very well.

I'd agree this is true, considering my neighbor has a f150 and gets 18 and I get 9.8
