PLS HELP! Right front sagging!! No Air Susp!

Hi. I bought a 97 expedition, came outside the next day and the right front tire is in the wheel well and the right rear is pulled down a bit too.. It doesnt have air suspension so im thinking its the TORSION BAR??? Called ford and they said that the part is not being made anymore :( Its my first week with my expedition so im a noob... Any help would be greatly appreciated, not sure where to go from here. Called a few scrappers and they dont have any torsion bars either.. What are my options?? IM LOST!

It may be the torsion bar but check underneath to be sure. Check here to see who might have what you need. Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market

Re: PLS HELP! Right front sagging!! No Air Susp!

Soooo. I got underneath. It is definately the passenger side torsion bar. Broke completely off.. So my next question would be can I simply go with coil over or is there another fix without messing with the torsion bar as ford doesnt have them?? Thanks in advance..

Bert, thanks for the great link..

A replacement torsion bar is the way to go.

Re: PLS HELP! Right front sagging!! No Air Susp!

Soooo. I got a torsion bar from the scrappers as ford doesnt have them anymore. While the donor truck was on the hoist I noticed that somebody just replaced the rear lower control arms on donor truck before they scrapped it so I got those as well.. They are less than a month old with oem stickers still attached. I got both lowers for $75 no tax and paid $75 for the torsion bar.. I think I did pretty good, now I gotta see if I can get the old broken torsion bar out of my expy.. :( Looks like its going to be a treat..
