Could also be the rubber bushing on the springplate has finally cold flowed or squished down from the weight of the car on it all these years to the point where the outer diameter of the spring plate splined shaft is rubbing on the 4 bolt cover that holds it on the torsion bar and in the torsion bar tube.

All 911's with the stock origonal rubber spring plate bushings have squished down by now and are off center to the point of almost touching or touching and rubbing the top of the hole in the cover.

Same goes for the stock front rubber control arm bushings.
They will eventually collapse from the weight of the car on them to the point where the front torsion bar will scrape on the inside of the front control arm as it pivots over bumps.
