Recently I purchased a set of original judge torsion rods for my 69. Of the three available adjustment slots , which ones do you use? Just curious where they were installed at the factory. Thanks

I'm curious; what is the diameter of the rods? I put a spoiler on my car that was not originally equipped and just put my factory rods in a different position and the trunk stays up fine.

They are approximately .312 Just about 5/16. The non judge rods I have seen are approximately .290. Not much difference but enough to support the spoiler

Furthest rear slot is correct on a '69. Was on my '69 Arlington and '69 Lakewood built Judges, original trunk lids and original heavy spoilers sprung right up.

Great, thanks for your help. That rearward most slot is the slot that provides the greatest amount of tension. Makes sense. I wish I could locate an original spoiler for my judge. It was gone when I purchased the car. Thanks again.
