trunk torsion bar

well I need to remove the trunk torsion bars cuz they are in the way and im installing trunk raisers(shocks). i noticed all they really do is help pop open the trunk when opening from the inside and help hold the trunk open, but is that all they do? question is do i need them?

Careful when taking them out, they have a huge amount of flex, once you get them over the lip that keeps them secured they will fly out. It wouldn't be silly to wear eye protection and gloves.

I was taking a trunk lid off once and once flew across the road, somehow missed my head haha.

yes across the road lol I tried last night to remove them, an they are in good, so gonna remove the whole arm bracket for the hood and just bolt it back together after I get it out. same process as removing deck lid just 2 extra bolts
