Torsion Bars

For Porsche 356

The Porsche 356 used two different systems of spring plates, cover plate, bushings, and torsion bars:
  • A and B chassis:
  • Came quipped with 627mm long torsion bars. Cover plates have a hole in the center. Spring plates have a visible “tube” section that passes through the cover plate. Both inner and out bushings are larger ID about 48mm.
  • Elephant Racing Polybronze, QuickChange spring plates, and Torsion bars are all designed for direct fit with this combination.
  • Pre-A, C and CS chassis:
  • Came equipped with 553mm long torsion bars. Cover plates have no center hole and a 4-nub style bushing. Spring plates have a short “tube” section that is not visible when installed because it does not pass through the cover plate. Outer bushings are larger 48mm Id and inner bushings have a smaller 45mm ID.
  • Elephant Racing Polybronze, QuickChange spring plates, and Torsion bars can be used on these cars provided all 4 components (torsion bars, cover plate, spring plate, bushings) are converted together.

Plated & Plugged Hollow Torsion Bars

Our Plated & Plugged Hollow torsion bars are the best available. The ends are plugged to prevent moisture entry that rots ordinary hollow bars from the inside out. The entire bar is zinc plated for superior protection.

Excellent quality control means proper spline fit and spring-rate consistency bar-to-bar. Inferior quality competing bars fail on all counts.

  • Hollow, light weight
  • Plated & Plugged
  • Consistent spring rate
  • Great spline fit

*The size given is a solid-bar-equivalent. Actual hollow bar measures about .5mm larger.

Hollow bars provide a nice weight savings over equivalent spring rate solid bars, especially true of the heavier rear bars. This is a great way to trim extra pounds from the back of your car.

  • “After a few slow laps around town, we hit the side roads for some spirited driving. My Porsche responded immediately like it was on rails. No drama, no squealing tires, no understeer, and no body roll. It was sublime… I’m exceptionally pleased the way things turned out.” Jack W. – Torsion Bar

QuickChange™ Torsion Bars

QuickChange Torsion Bars are Plated & Plugged and include a female threaded end that you can engage with a bolt to use as a handle for easier extraction / insertion.

Use the rears bars in combination with our QuickChange™ Spring Plate products for fast torsion bar swapping and re-indexing. QuickChange™ Torsion Bars can be extracted through the QuickChange™ Spring Plate without removing any bolts. Alignment settings are maintained. You don’t even need to remove the wheel from the car. Changing torsion bars is a 5 minute per side operation!

A QuickChange™ Insert is available separately for converting your existing hollow torsion bars.

QuickChange™ Torsion Bars make it easy to dislodge a stuck bar, and thereby offer benefits even when used on the front and with factory spring plates (factory spring do not allow the bars to be extracted without removing the plates).

Sway-Away Hollow Torsion Bars

Hollow Sway-a-way bars provide a good solution for suspension builds on a more modest budget. Lacking the benefits of our high-end products, they still deliver the basic torsion bar sizing needed to customize your performance.Sway-A-Way Hollow Torsion Bars for Porsche 911
