Hi all, my pug (even though its getting sold) looks like its on stilts at the back and i was just wondering how much approx it'd cost to take it down a couple of notches on the torsion bar. But when i have people in the back will it scrub to f**k? cheers <img border="0" alt="[cwnuts]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions051.gif" />

used to have a 306, doing the torsion bar yourself only takes about 3 hrs, IF it hasn't seized, I had mine dropped on 15's and only if there was some heavy, heavy weight it scrub. think the haynes / max power manuals have got guidelines ( I had help from a couple of peugeot mechanics)

Not many places will touch torsion bars...

I am running 80mm at the rear, on 16s and i rub with passengers when going over bumps, but its not that bad..

I have removed the plastic inner moulds and ground away the rear bumper bracket ad it is so much better...

Pm me for a great place to do the torsion bar, great work and dirt cheap!!!
