Salt,

Found some used ones on eBay here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/30315453248...0AAOSwV5lc2vy4

Not sure how to decide whether they are the correct diameter, the correct part number (there are probably some variations in) OD, length and maybe spline type? And more importantly, whether they are safe...

Tom

Salt shaker, are you still looking for torsion bars? I have a set of series 3 torsion bars that are .850"diameter that I'm willing to part with. Let me know if you're still looking.

Dan, thnx for the offer. I currently have .86 in the car and very little movement in the front suspension movement. The car has Sach Supper Touring Shocks and Iím not familiar with themÖ My thoughts were to use a lighter torsion bar but also not sure if the problem might be the shocks. Do you remember what diameter torsion bars you had on your car?
