The clunking noise I had that sounded like bad sway bar links (which are fine), actually went away after cranking the torsion bars.

I went as far as replacing the rubber pads that go between the torsion bar seat and the frame. Still didn't make any difference. lol.

When you go over a pothole at a solid 7 mph and can't tell the difference between a 9.8 magnitude earthquake.

Someone ask you what you drive, you tell them, and then they ask again.

I had a creak in my old truck .. Replaced front and rear suspension, and it still creaked. Ball joints, bushings, shocks, leaf springs...all new and still creak. I never did find out what the noise was...I guess the frame was just old lol

When rebuild the entire suspension and install heavier leaf springs and the damn truck still leans or when have new parts in the bed and decide to trade it in for an F150.
