    Sway-Away 26mm Torsion bars AVAILABLE!

    Finally got some info back from Sway-Away:


    Hello Eric,

    Thank you for your email.

    We can do a small production run of these torsion bars at $285.00 per set.

    The lead time is 3 to 4 weeks and we would need 50% to start the job.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Best regards,
    --

    Gonna contact him Monday for particulars so I can post the info here. Basically, I talked them into a small production run FOR US. So please, if you were wanting them, NOW is the time (well, soon as I figure out the what's and who's). Good time for those part hoarders to pick up a set or 2, as well.

    for gen 2 correct? does it help lift it any higher or just help it ride better when lifted? probably in for sure.. already got my montero arms waiting. 4 weeks should hopefully allow me time to come up with the money

    Spec shows up to 1989 on those bars, so yep, yers is a go!

    Soon as I have info, you'll know more. Keep in mind, they want 50% up-front...just not sure if that is per set ordered or for a fixed number of sets and all the money up front for the production run. This may yet fail unless we can get some people on board if that is the case.

    Hello Eric,

    We can do a run of 4 sets.

    We can use a credit card for the 50%, or, you can send in a check for $570 ($285.00 x 4 sets = $1140.00)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    4 is apparently their minimum. We have three so far, so I may go ahead and order 2 sets and sit on one. Gotta figure out a way for us to get our deposits made en masse so that we can get this run started and get our shinnies shipped! Deposit will be $142 for each of us. Gonna call him and see if we can get a common ordering acct or some such. Other option is PayPal, can send it to me, and I'll pass it on to them. Trick is, we still have at least 3 shipping addresses for this.

    Still need to iron out a few kinks, I guess. BUT, this is going to happen for sure now.


    ATTENTION FENCE SITTERS:

    This may (or may not) be the last time these torsion bars are available, NOW would be a damn good time to get a set of OS bars for your 4x4 if you ever think you are going to want a set! Considering the level of persistence I had to put into this, you may never get them to do another run!!

    Can't wait to get this all sorted out! this truck is going to have about triple what it's worth into it by the time I even get it on the road! lol

    got my new montero arms with balljoints, going to get shackles this week if I didn't wait too long on that deal. she'll be sitting pretty soon enough.

    come on 4th person let's get this done .. the sooner we confirm and order them the sooner we can sit back and wait forever for them to be finished
    by that time I should have it legal

    Had to go through my finances and make sure I could swing 2 sets. Really I can't, but I will anyway. Gonna call him either tomorrow from my layover or Friday when I get home from the road. Expect a PM this weekend about how to make your payment, will email Mr. Warme at the same time. With 3-4 weeks of lead time, I've gotta get mine ordered ASAP. Was really hoping to get a few more takers on this, but it is what it is.

    LAST CHANCE!

    Ball is rolling, getting the orders set now. Guessing early next week and this production run is a done deal depending on how fast these guys send their deposit/payment. If you want in, send me a PM with a valid email addy.

    I am ordering 2 sets, the additional set will be sat on for a few months for board members. Yes, you WILL be charged a premium for the fact I can't really afford 2 sets right now, but I am going to do so anyhow.

    Emails sent out, sorry for being slow...been busier than the proverbial one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest.


    Edit: I just noticed something...list price for these bars was $330, we were quoted at $285!

    wait so did we get a cheaper deal or was the price off?? I just sent the form for the $142.50... I mean I'd pay the 330 but I honestly don't have the spare 22.50 at this moment.

    Nada yet, assuming he'll send me sometime next week. If not, I call him Friday.

    Yeah, $285 not much less, but it IS less! lol

    I've had a set of these on my truck for the past 20 years. It was one of the first mods I did. they're well worth it. twenty years of hot GA sun and off roading later, they still hold true.

    What differences does it actually make running them. I know it would obviously be stronger for when they are cranked
