    Cracked ladder bar/torque bar

    I jacked the car up today and found out that the torque bar is cracked. Do these come stock with them or is it an aftermarket piece? Do you think i could take it off? I think this might have something to do with my vibrating right rear wheel at about 50 mph

    Yes, the stock stamped steel torque arm is prone to breaking. I would recommend a adjustable TQ Arm for future modifications to the rear end. Check out www.KYSPEED.com. You can also send a private message to, Marksls1ta on this website and discuss further options.

    ok my brother is driving over to bmr to pick up an adjustable one since its only about 45 minutes away from our house and i have to go to work at 3. theyre going to install it today and hopefully that fixes some rear end suspension problems. Do u think it might fix the rear wheel vibration that it had after installing the new one? or could that be a different problem?
