    Torsion Tool To Remove Or Install Spring Plates Or Torsion Bars


    Install a short torsion bar in your Manx or Baja Bug for offroad tire clearance. The stock torsion bar sticks out and can interfere with larger tires. Please see individual parts of the kit below.

    Rear Type 1 VW Suspension Setups:

    Swing Axle

    And 

    Irs, Rear Independent Suspension

    The most obvious difference between the two is camber effect is more severe on a swing axle versus an IRS.

    Torsion Bar Lengths:

    21 3/4 (Torsion Bar Does Not Stick Out)

    24 11/16 ( Torsion Bar Sticks Out 3 Inches)

    26 9/16 ( Torsion Bar Sticks Out 5.5 Inches)

    Choosing Torsion Length:

    1969 And Newer is IRS and used 26 9/16 Torsion Bars

    Type 1 up to 1958 is Swing Axle and used 24 11/16 Torsion Bars

    1958 - 1968 bugs were all Swing Axle and used 21 3/4 Torsion Bars

    VW Thing were all IRS and used 24 11/16 Torsion Bars
