yo.

i just installed the 02 OEM rear lip spoiler and my trunk doesn't pop anymore. i called the dealership and they told me that its because there are 2 kinds of torsion bars used for our trunks. one is for a trunk with no spoiler, and the other is for a trunk with spoiler. the dealership sells them for 50 bucks a bar!

can anybody get me a cheaper price for a set of torsion bars?


and for those of you who installed a spoiler- what did ya'll do with this issue? leave it and not have your trunk pop?


thanx

I have the stock factory installed spoiler and my trunk doesn't pop up either. sometimes it would and others it wouldn't, it was a crap shoot. since then I added sound deadening and it doesn't budge an inch when I release it. It barely stays open too, cause it's too heavy. I just learned to live with it. I was thinking about putting some spacers (washers?) under the mouting points to see if it would give any more leverage but I never got around to it.

I had a spoiler installed on my car when I bought it from the dealer.. my trunk has never popped up since day 1. But I just deal with it. Why spend the money, when it's not that big of a deal .. just reach down and open it with your hand.
