Trunk lid torque rods

Anyone have any secrets about installing a trunk lid torque rod on a '67 Chevelle?

Our 67 Beaumont (same as a Chevelle) busted one last week. Just picked up a replacement but have never

changed one and never seen it done.

happy motoring

I use a large heavy pipe handle with a hole in the center that fits exactly into the torsion rod end....this gives me great leverage. It takes a bit of strength do get the job done. It can also be very dangerous, you must be careful....it is best to wear welding gloves incase the torsion rods slip.....this way atleast your hands will be somewhat protected.

Here is thread on a '66 Chevelle.....should be very similar.

Good luck,
