HELP!! Broken torsion bar

1311 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  scoutguy66
Ill start with my setup... 2002 f250 superduty, 7.3l, 6.5 procomp lift, 37" bfgs, skyjacker dual steering stablizer.

While driving on the freeway, i suddenly noticed the front end started to feel like it was floating. I pulled over and found the torsion bar had snapped right in the middle. I tried calling 4 wheel parts to see about an aftermarket one that may be stronger, and they arent able to find anyone who makes them.

I guess Im wondering if this has happen to anyone else, or if its just a freak thing that happen to me, and also if anyone knows where i can purchase something a bit stronger since that one snapped??

Thanks in advance for any help!

yeah, that might be it... Its a bar going from the driver side chasis to the passenger side front axel.
Thanks for the input guys. After some research, it turns out that the track bar should be upgraded at the time of installing the lift. I guess theyll bend after lifting. I found that skyjacker makes an adjustable track bar, and tuff country makes one thats suitable for up 8 inches of lift, if i remember correctly. The stock track bar is 3/4" thick and the tuff country one is an inch, im not positive about the skyjacker one.

It could have just been my imagination, but it has seemed that my trucks front end had gotten a bit lower lately, then this happen,and its obviously lower now.
