Default How long do torsion axels last?

Is there a way to tell when they are starting to go?

Yes the rubber bands do wear out over time, I would say they should last about 10+/- years with normal use and proper care. You can check the start angle of the torsion arm, and look at the wheel in the fender. If it looks off center the axle will probably need to be replaced. Give me a call anytime.
