I have a 1984 Viscount 12ft Aerolite poptop and the passenger side suspension has sagged about 30mm. I suspect the torsion bar has lost its tension. I need to know if it it possible to purchase a new one or if it is possible to repair ie can you remove bar and turn it 2-3 splines and reinsert it (like volswagon suspension).

The Viscount aerolite used the Koeber chasssis and Alko Suspension. Put Alko in a search engine and give them a ring.
Have a look to if your chassis is made by Koeber and has a strange handbrake....... if so the chassis is imported and had a few problems which can be fixed.
I fixed heaps of Aerolites in my days
If you need more info email me on reinerg@bigpond.net.au

cheers

No problems apart from sagging suspension, but have since found it only costs approx $250.00 to repair. Would have to be one of the best towing vans I have owned.
