When you replace or repair your torsion bar, you may need a new torsion bar mount for your antique car, and the place to get it is here at Andersen Restorations. What Does a Torsion Bar Do? Torsion bars are often thought of by drivers as the part of their classic car’s suspension that’s integral in determining how high the vehicle rides. This is definitely a function of a torsion bar, but it isn’t the only one. The torsion bar helps your classic car recover from the bumps and potholes it hits, bringing it quickly back to its natural position. Although many cars have torsion bars, they are often more associated with trucks and heavy equipment. These vehicles sometimes need more support, especially if they are traveling off-road or driving in challenging conditions. Additionally, years ago, some drivers adjusted their torsion bars to give their vehicles a “jacked up” appearance. This can put undue pressure on the spring mechanisms, however, eventually causing them to sag under the weight of the vehicle. Investing in a heavy-duty torsion bar may safely give you the height you desire. How Do You Know When Something Is Wrong with Your Torsion Bar? The most obvious sign of a compromised torsion bar is that the front or back end — or a single front or back corner — of your classic car is riding low. This could mean the torsion bar broke or came loose. If you can, take a look and see if your torsion bar is cracked or heavily rusted. If so, you probably to replace it. Another sign of a torsion bar that has come loose is a loud clanking noise when driving. If the torsion bar itself is still functional, you may only need to order a torsion bar mount to reattach it to the axle. Do You Need OEM Parts for Classic Cars? Sometimes it’s important to use an OEM part to repair your classic car’s suspension, but oftentimes you can get a part build to OEM specifications that’s just as good or better. Especially with parts like torsion bars, OEM spec parts built today are even stronger than older or original parts.
