Torsion bars can be bent. Have you done some crazy wheeling or jumps? If they are bent, have a look at them from the back, and you'll fairly soon figure it out.

Welcome to Infamous.

A torsion bar is just a straight spring and over time can wear out. Sway a Way makes new torsion bars, they are a good company, the bars they sell are 20% stiffer than stock, be careful if you get new ones, 2 and 4wd are different
