If I was an 4wd aftermarket saleman I wouldn't agree with that cos it would conflict with nearly everything I try and sell.
Exactly. :boggle:

Agree with everything whizzo said. Probably could have gone without the torsion bars, but they've been on 12 months now and they're fine. Have heard stories about some aftermarket ones being really harsh & bouncy but these ones arent bad. Still got the original ones stashed under the house & if i end up swapping the steel side steps & brush bars for some lighter aluminium side steps i'll probably refit them

Hi Folks,
I thought I would re-open this thread rather than start a new one.
I have a 2002 Lux but am not sure what suspension setup I have. I know the rear springs are EFS because the stickers were still on them when I bought the vehicle. I'm pretty sure the four shocks are those cheap jobs off ebay, I know the front ones are for sure.
What I'm not sure is if the torsion bars were upgraded along with the rear springs. What is the diameter of an aftermarket torsion bar for a Hilux. I can google it, but I only get an OD of 26mm. Is this the spline or the rest of the bar? What is the diameter of a Toyota original bar?
My bars are 23mm diameter (not the spline part)
Any info would be great.

Thanks,
Goldie
