Torsion Tension and Ride HeightUs Mopar guys and gals have always held our torsion bar suspensions near and dear to our hearts. Why? Well, for one, we have the option of raising or lowering our ride height to suit our needs or desires with the turn of a 3/4-inch wrench. The same holds true for transverse torsion bar suspensions systems. That built-in adjustability comes at a price, though, as the raising and lowering of the front end affects suspension pre-load. The torsion bar is simply an oddly-shaped coil spring with a given "spring rate". Lowering the suspension takes pre-load away, causing the suspension to react at a slower rate of speed, while the opposite holds true when the torsion bars are cranked up and the front end is raised. We opted for a lower ride height in order to punch a smaller hole through the air with our vending-machine-like aerodynamics. It's a compromise, but one we were willing to make in the pursuit of top-end stability.
