My torsion bars are worn out. Every time I crank up the front of my rig, it droops or settles back down within a few weeks. I figure I need a new set of torsion bars. Unfortunately that isn't as easy as calling local stealership and ordering up a set. It also isn't as easy as searching part numbers online and clicking "buy". I can find the passenger side bar, but am striking out on the driver side.
These are the numbers:
The local parts guy says the LH is discontinued. Also said the RH is at a dealership in Laramie WY, likely $350+ and shipping. I think I found the RH online for around $200. I can't find the LH online anywhere.
I've read enough about swapping bars to know that it probably isn't a good idea to run bars from a 2500, with key indexing/clocking and torque rating, but could be convinced otherwise if someone might be able to speak to me with experience showing that it can be done without adverse affect.
With the amount of these rigs on the road still, I find it extremely difficult to believe that the bars are unavailable.
Does anyone have any insight or a solution for me?
