Torsion bar bushings

Post by bus71 » Sat Jun 13, 2015 7:20 pm

We replaced the bushings and reset the spring plates on our 71, the handling is like it was 20 plus years ago. I had forgotten how well our bus can drive. Ride is smoother and corners are a dream. Thought I would put this out for those whose bus is handfull to drive. Good luck!

I just put new front shocks on my ghia and it made a nice difference in handling. No more jarring at every little bump in the road esp. since the streets and freeways are in terrible condition in Seattle these days.

Got new videos of catching apexes in a 1970 bus.
