fitting this type of suspension would border on being illegal these days.

torsion bar suspension is illiegal in certain applications down here in tas nowdays,
i have heard all good reviews on the resin products from p&p,then a friend of mine picked up one of the inter conversions which i got a firsthand look at and it is a very nice casting

the torsion bars have a habit of breaking,they arent a nice thing when they do especally when loaded,
hence not allowed for logging or any other heavy application,there are still plenty about on tipper and highway work ect

There's a listing for it on ebay at the moment. Or you could just buy a W model kit with the suspension already in it. Very Happy
