Torsion bar swap (UBS69 /UCS69)

Postby bensco82 » Thu Nov 30, 2017 4:22 pm

Hi everyone,

Is it possible to swap the torsion bars from an Isuzu Bighorn (UBCS69) to a Wizard (UCS68)?

Thanks for that. I might just buy the torsion bars, shock absorbers and coil springs for a Jackaroo and replace mine. :D

Isn't the Wizard and Bighorn/Trooper the exact same chassis but with a different body?

They share a lot but the Wizard is closer to the Rodeo chassis

Also the rodeo has leaf rear springs and drum brakes rear.
The wizard has coil springs and disk brakes in the rear.
