    Also started working on a junkyard torsion sway bar setup. Pulled a torsion bar out of a 2wd toyota pickup. 35" long and a 22.3mm (7/8") torsion bar splined on both ends(different diameters)

    Here's the two splined ends:

    Cast end


    Mild steel end


    Made some simple mounts to mount the torsion bar parallel with a tube that runs between my shock hoops under the bed



    I didn't take many pictures but I cut the mild steel down so it was just a 2.25" wide round piece, notched the square tubing and welding it in.

    The cast side, I left complete, notched the square tubing and grinded where needed so that it slid right in.

    Welded around the whole notch and also to the whole flat side of the arm on the side of the square tubing.

    Made my arms out of 2"x2"x.250" square tubing. They have a 1.5" ID so I can run a 5/8 to 1/2" heim double Shear. 22" long is most likely what it will need to be. Also welded in retainers and drilled and tapped the gun drilled ends of the torsion bar for some short 5/16x24 bolts to keep the sway bar arms in place.

    Just need to mock it all up and see if I can keep the arms and end links from going parallel without taking the sway bar arms up into my bed at full bump.

    I'm sure you guys will want to know cost

    Pik-n-pull Torsion bar $25
    Metal for arms and end links $60
    Poly mount $20
    Heim sets and hardware $85
    Total: $190 and some fab work

    Took the brackets off of the factory bench seat then used some 1 square tubing to tie the factory brackets to my Hyundai tiburon seats





    Now its time to build a center console and decide how I want everything situated.
