If you are doing it properly you should remove the torsion bars and leaves. This is becoming a lot more popular in the US and gives significant advantages. It's not cheap though!!!yellowbugmonster said:Has anyone got coilover shocks on their T1? Is it possible to do away with the stock torsion bars and replace them with beefy coilovers? I've seen huge Fox and Bilstein coilovers on some of the baja 1000 racers, but do they keep the stock bars as well? Any ideas how it would affect the road handling?
Yep, seconded, tried and tested in the US. Personally I'd make them dual shear though - there is a potentual weakness. Although I've not heard of them failing.billybob said:Yeah they'd be fine. Designed for use with custom arms like 3x3's etc.
