    Someone cut out my BD torsion housing out, I welded in a new one but I don’t have BD torsion bars.  What else can I use?

    Bug ones fit (outer) but then the spring plate doesn’t fit.  Any advice or words?  Ideally I would like to buy 2 barndoor or early bug? torsion bars.

    cut down some early bus bars..  5/8″ off one side, 1/2″ off the shorter side… that’s how we used to narrow early bus to accept short axle trans when slamming….  😎

    Ahh nice!!  Thank you for the simple and elegant solution!

    Also, these look tough to cut, how did you guys do it?  Cutting wheel? IMG_6528

    Yeah on cutting the late bus shorter to fit BD. They ride better too. Smaller diameter.

    3″ 90 die grinder cut off wheel? +lots of time.

    Thanks for the help, my buddy has a CHOP SAW!  I’ve never used one, should be fun.
