Default Re: Torsion bars. What to do?

Nope. I live down by water which is far from anyone really lol. I can get some tools or might already have some if you can list them. Parts and can look up online at Autozone or Advance AP's. Air tools do not have at all because I do not have a compressor (wish I did). Make projects a whole lot faster for me.

U-bolts, Autozone might be able to order them? Hammer, whatever size you have will be fine.

You can probably get by without a breaker bar. Just use a piece of pipe over your ratchet handle. = Cheater pipe.



Don't forget to get it aligned afterwards if you like your tires.

Thanks for the luck, I will. Got myself a nice GE X5 camera and does some nice shots. So I will post pics and possibly a fully detailed write up so people like myself will understand it COMPLETELY . I'll make it into a picture book lol.

----------

Chris and Tyler, I really thank you for helping me out on this and actually consider taking time out of your life to come help a fellow member like myself I really appreciate it.

----------

Um, just checked out the site. 19 bucks for some U-Bolts?! That's freaking insane! Is that for just one or both? If both woa! If just one, that's not too bad; under 40 bucks for a lower stance on the truck, I'll bite!

4? Dammit! lol. Just my luck.

Well if you go to the site and add that to the cart it will show you a quantity or 2. Now does that mean it comes with two per order? So ordering a quantity or two will equal 4 u-bolts? You know what I mean? And this goes to anyone who can help me with the question lol. coughTYLERandCHRIScough. ahem excuse me

From TascaParts it would be about $45 for 4 U-Bolts.

Default Re: Torsion bars. What to do?

Yeah, but when I placed one in my cart the quantity says 2 instead of one. So maybe they sell them in pairs so two in the cart equals 4 all together?

Default Re: Torsion bars. What to do?

i dont remember exactly if they came in a pack of 2 or not. you could always call them.


and for the record, they are usually half of what tedbritt ford lists on their parts. I needed a window regulator for my f150 and it was gonna cost me 220 from tedbritt. It was 120 shipped next day too.

also, if you want it done asap, get them asap. Im free next weekend, and have a heated garage
