Torsion Bar???

Hi guys sorry for the stupid question, but what exactly is a torsion bar?
Is it the same thing as a stabilizer bar?

Ooops .... car is an EA Falcon.

Re: Torsion Bar???

Torsion bars are in Valiants (and some Prorche, some Toyota's etc) but not EA Falcons. Essentialy steel bars under tension that act as springs. See pic here http://www.4x4abc.com/ML320/ml320_torsions.html

Re: Torsion Bar???

Thanks for that info Aussieblue.
The reason I asked was that I picked up a cheap EA wagon and was told it had the 2 nuts missing off each end of the torsion bar.

I'll be buggered if I could find a torsion bar???
