Torsion Bar Bushing

Postby steveyo [OP] » Dec 15 2010, 9:58pm

Ive had this clunk for months now, and finally had the time to get to my buddys to check it out. he went directly under the driver side of the truck and shook a bar, and turned out to be the noise... bad bushing.. Interested to know what the bushing is called to order it. its connected to my torsion bars i believe?

Could it be your stabilizer bar bushings shot? Does the truck lean on corners?

to my knowledge there is no bushing on the torsion bars, bar goes into a arm on one side and torsion key on other
