Torsion Bar Upgrades - Colour Coded

A great way to stiffen the front suspension, for people who want a sportier ride, either because it has been lowered or has a heavy camper interior.

If you want the purple or Grey torsion bar you also need to upgrade the front ARB/stabiliser bar and rods to the 27mm version from the normal 23.5mm

701411025H Stabliser
701411049B Link x 2
701411041D Rubber mount x 2

Comes in varieties; the thicker the stiffer

20mm ARB stabilizer 7D0511407
26mm ARB stabilizer 701511407C
28mm ARB stabilizer 7D0511407A

Phone you local dealer for a price.

So correct me if I am wrong but if I would like to replace my current 1.9TD 800 special torsion bars with a set of brown Caravelle ones then they are a straight swap?

Check under the bonnet for axle loads. Being a caravelle and 5 pot engine it'll probably be 1560kg on the front axel so brown torsion bars to keep it original.

You shouldn't need to change your ARB as this is done only if you want to decrease roll at the front. If you do fit a bigger front ARB then you should fit one at the back axle too.
