I very much doubt it, I suspect the independent suspension is much more likely to sway and I also would imagine your suspension is designed with more comfort in mind than the gen 2 - so softer

Was told that my torsion bars are getting old as now after the new gear has been installed they are wound up about as far as they will go. I have been able to source a pair of heavy duty bars for a couple of hundred for the pair so will probably grab them and hang on to them.

what have you installed.... remember a winch and steel bull bar can add nearly 100kg's to the front end and old or not the stock torsion bars are not really designed to carry that extra weight.

Have added a light alloy bar and a couple of spotlights, so not a great deal of extra weight in the front. Most of it is in the rear and mid section.

So what is the diameter of stock vs "heavy duty" options?



I ask because I have been told by a suspension guy that is happy to sell me an upgrade that after market torsion bars are same diameteras the stock bars, and that stock are plenty good enough to do a steel bar + winch when wound up.

Default PB Challenger suspension.

I intend doing some suspension work on my PB and am on the lookout for a full set of used front and rear standard coils preferably in the Brisbane area if available.

The upgraded torsion bars are tjm xgs with an upgraded rate. Specs show that the bars are the same as original in diameter.

sorry missed this - yeah often the HD torsions are the same diameter but a different grade metal... I have seen HD's that were a thicker diameter but its not common from what I have seen
