very cool! I always wondered what a torsion axle looked like inside the tube. No wonder your not supposed to use a jack directly on the tube.

I'm a big fan of Torsion axles. They give trailers the best possible performance, stability and ride. By their physics it promotes independent suspension on the wheels/tires. They cost more but well worth it.

Thnxs for posting the pic sam.
