If you are driving a 1993 Ford EXPLORER, or if you are planning to purchase one, then it is important that you review reported Suspension Front Springs Torsion Bar problems and defects. Total reports: 1.
While Vehicle Was Elevated For Tire Rotation, I Noticed A Crack In What I Call The Torsion Bar On Both Sides Of The Front End Of My Vehicle. The Torsion Bar Is Attached To The Outer End Of The Cross Beams Inside Each Wheel. The Cracks Looked Like Fatigue Failures. They Encircled The Rear End Of The Torsion Bar Bushing Where It Goes Through The Support Bracket. Both Sides Were About To Completely Fail. To My Knowledge I Had Not Hit Anything That Would Cause These Parts To Fail. If I Had Continued To Drive And A Failure Had Occurred I Would Have Potentially Lost Control Of The Vehicle And Possibly Have Rolled Over. I Returned The Failed Parts To My Local ford Dealer, Ken Stoepel ford In Kerrville, Texas, And Suggested He Let The Manufacturer Know. *ak
