so i saw over on STF a question, and i was wondering the opposide. I have an IRS tranny, lets saw for some reason i wanted to put a swing on there, would i just have to take the trailing arms off, replace the spring plates and use a swing axle tranny? can the same toraion bars be used? is it even the same torsion?


what im getting at is ....when i get around to building my rail ( probably more later than sooner) can i just find one with a IRS torision housing on it and use a swing if i wanted to make a class 9 buggy. or is it all different.

You will need swing axle spring platesand matching torsions or cut IRS spring plates and matching torsions.

Yes, But you will need new spring plates too, and I am not sure if the spline is the same for the tortion bar... But I do know it has been done. I know a guy who liked the lean-in tire look of a lowered bug so used a swing setup in a 72

I converted my 65 to IRS, the bad thing is that torsion sticking out makes 31" tires not an option. I found with irs torsion I could get more travel do to the longer torsion,wasted two sets of short swing axle torsion. Now I went back to the shorter swing axle torsion,but installed a set of airbags to take up the load,and set the torsion vary light. Now I'm not over twisting,and can adjust. They track much beter also,the air keeps them tires on the ground
