The Torsion bar suspension was first patented by Ferdinand Porsche in 1931.
From there, this type of suspension has been used in mass produced vehicles, high performance vehicles and is now more commonly found on commercial vehicles.
Compared to other suspension systems, torsion bars are simpler and lighter while still providing a comfortable ride, adequate traction and body roll reduction.
