    Sway away torsion bars

    I am getting the ball rolling on my own with the torsion bars. They are going to be making me 2 sets so that I will have an extra. If you want on the list get $400 and let me know.

    Are you sure they are going to make them? Others have tried this, and got nothing from them but aggravation and frustration. Hope it works out for you.

    Yes they will make them. I spoke w/ them at the 2015 Mint 400 and they indeed will I think the same ballpark price they quoted me at the time. I was actually able to luck out that the one guy @ Mint said he would look in warehouse and found a last set that I bought. Good luck with them IMHO they are a quality piece. They were tremendous in my plow truck with the extra front end weight.

    Spoke with Brian who is and has been the owner @Mint 2017. True off road guy,really embraces the sport especially guys who build their own stuff. I have his direct line if anyone ever needs it. Need more like him in the sport instead of all the big companies buying up all the Mom&Pop operations. Generally personal service is lost many times. Felt the same when JB got out of the accessory biz. IMHO.

    I do get why JB got out of the biz - there were no more new trucks, and the ones out there were mostly used as trucks until dead, so no real market for performance parts.
