    Our 1.03 Torsion bar arrived from the forge today. I do apologize for the long back order on these. PST's bars are proudly made in the USA and carry a lifetime limited warranty for as long and you own your Mopar.

    Thanks
    James

      Well that didn't take long, the site says they're out of stock again. When are you expecting the next batch?

        This is what I see when I follow the link. I don't doubt that you guys have them, but perhaps the website needs to be updated? I think I'm going to put my order in next week.

            How long will they take to ship after ordering and are they the standard ride height bars?

            Is the .03" the thickness of the paint on the bar, and is the actual bar 1" in diameter?

            Are there any plans of making similar priced, thicker A-body bars in the future, like 1.06" or 1.10"?

            I'm currently daily driving my '73 Dart with 1" bars, but could be tempted to step up to 1.06 or 1.10 one day.

            If PST had 1.10's I probably would have gone that route. Sure, Firm Feel has 1.06's and 1.12's but PST's price is hard to beat!

            I ordered 1.03" and they're sitting in my garage. I was too lazy to install them this weekend. Maybe next weekend.

            That is the thickness of the bar. As now we have only these bars.

            Thanks

            you want a minimum of 318 A/C-340 bars and can step up to 383 bars. Lots of guys like the truck ride of the bigger bars, your choice.

            If your car is for street use. The largest I would go with is about 1.03" Any larger than that you would be sacrificing ride quality. Also be sure to use a good quality shock like a Bilstien or Viking.

            Thanks

            I have 1.12" torsion bars on my Duster with Hotchkis Fox shocks. 340 small block, 4 speed, manual steering, aluminum intake, headers, no-A/C, lighter brakes, etc. It doesn't ride like a truck, and compared to the 1" bars I used to run the ride quality has not suffered greatly. Match the right shocks to your torsion bars and the "truck ride" and loss of ride quality is a thing of the past. Stock 340 bars with KYB's ride harsher than my car does now, and I've run those too.

            Educate me on the shock dictating the ride harshness. I have heard this stiff bar+'good' shock combo Is not harsh but I'm not following how the shock us going to mellow out a stiff torsion bar/spring. What's the difference between a kyb and a bilstein? I have never owned a bilstein, always whatever was under there when I bought it or recently KYB but have not driven it yet.

            i am running 1" bars with a slant six and crappy kyb shocks for now and they are far from riding like a truck. i highly doubt these pst bars will ride like a truck either. people who say that crap usually haven't ever driven a car with big bars..

            go 1" minimum. you wont be sorry..

            The shock dampens the ride. It dictates how quickly the suspension compresses and rebounds and for lack of better terms it dampens the shock/jarring of the suspension going up and down. As far as the various manufacturer of shocks are concerns KYB tends to have a harsher rebound and compression where as the Bilstiens have digressive valving that provides better control without the harshness normally associated with a performance shock absorber

            Thanks
