TJM Torsion Bar for the 100 Series Land Cruiser.
1998-2007 Toyota Land Cruiser Torsion Bar
TJM Torsion Bar will work on:
- Lexus LX470
- Toyota 100 Series Land Cruiser
The TJM 100 Series Land Cruiser Torsion Bar is made with premium steel and powedercoated to provent corrosion. The TJM Land Cruiser Torsion Bar will provide lift and improve ride quality. TJM 100 Series Torsion Bars are an upgrade from the toyota factory torsion bar.
A torsion bar suspension, also known as a torsion spring suspension or torsion beam suspension, is a general term for any vehicle suspension that uses a torsion bar as its main weight bearin spring like the 1998-2007 Toyota 100 Series Land Cruiser. One end of a long metal bar is attached firmly to the vehicle chassis; the opposite end terminates in a lever, the torsion key, mounted perpendicular to the bar, that is attached to a suspension arm, a spindle, or the axle. Vertical motion of the wheel causes the bar to twist around its axis and is resisted by the bar's torsion resistance. The effective spring rate of the bar is determined by its length, cross section, shape, material, and manufacturing process. The main advantages of a torsion bar suspension are durability, easy adjustability of ride height, and small profile along the width of the vehicle. It takes up less of the vehicle's interior volume than coil springs. A disadvantage is that torsion bars, unlike coil springs, usually cannot provide a progressive spring rate. In most torsion bar systems, ride height (and therefore many handling features) may be changed by simply adjusting bolts that connect the torsion bars to the steering knuckles. In most cars with this type of suspension, swapping torsion bars for a different spring rate is usually an easy task.
