Quick Torsion Bar Question


Ha tricked you! There is no such thing! Ok, seriously I have here brand-new rear bars I am about to install, as you can see, they are hollow, plugged & 28 BUT
which is L and which is R ? Sometimes obvious things are not obvious to me so excuse my ignorance... I suppose I could call the manufacturer but its early in CA right now..

From what I understand, it doesn't matter if they are new. It only matters on used bars, since the torsion might have twisted the grain a bit one direction. If they're new, they should be identical.

Yep, he’s correct. They are not handed until they have been installed and used.

I always use an engraver to mark them L and R before I install them, for future clarity.
