Torsion bars and corner balancing....
 
Well, just picked up the 930...busted a rear torsion bar so replaced them with 28's and had her rebalanced...what a difference.....:D

No more squat at initial boost...car tracks beautifully...not too harsh a ride for this car which will no longer be raced....now its off to the paint booth for fresh respray....Lyn Howe (RSstop on Pelican) in Jupiter Farms did the bars and the corner balance...top notch....

Approximately how much for the corner balance?
Does Lyn have the digital or analog scales that go under each tire?

I've only done the sloppy home driveway version of almost corner balanceing the car by jacking up the car from the middle at opposite ends, etc...

I have weltmeister adjustable spring plates on the back to make the rear adjustment much easier.

PM me if you prefer, I'm in West Palm.

Hey J....can't say exactly how many hours in the balance...yes he has the digital setup...total cost was $540 (12 hours @$45 per) but most of the hours were spent on getting the bars and bushings out.....I'll PM you his number.....

The only way you can accurately corner balance the car is with scales on a level surface. Otherwise you won't know if your cross weights are any where they need to be. Side to side balance will rarely come out the same, especially if you account for the driver and fuel weight.
