Cool, thanks. I've got a Rock Equipment for the front of my TJ, just need to get a longer one for the rear when the time comes.....figured I'd see what other options were out there.

I haven't checked the price lately, but last I saw of their kit was $$$$. I'm on a pretty tight budget so as much as I love supporting a MI company, I can't go broke doing it.

I was thinking the same thing....did he mean "twist" instead of "bend" and not return to it's orignal shape? That seems like a bad thing for a torsion bar to do....

Yes you can along with the rest of it............... all comes at a very fair price.
Or, if you can scam a nice Rubi, we could make a trade.
