    I would start at a salvage yard, Napa, or a GM dealer. We have a Brake Service (they changed their name to Traction, i think it is) around here that does leaf springs. I'm not sure about torsion bars.

    I'm not familiar with Hopkington, but in Carver there is a place called Robertson's Auto salvage. May be able to get a set there..

    Change the keys while your at it, thats the big difference. My TB's are not even cranked at all and its higher than stock keys cranked.

    It's normal for the passenger side to be significantly more cranked than the drivers side. My truck came from the factory with about 10 turns difference. Do a search in this forum for other threads on the subject and you will find the specific part numbers you need to upgrade to better bars. Chevy made a dozen or so different spec bars. They all interchange so you might as well get heavier bars, not just new ones.
