Thanks for the replies. I have not reindexed the torsion bars. I only turned the screw to change the load on the torsion bar. If it were broken, would the car rebound after pushing down on it? The rebound seems to be good and the stiffness of the front end has not changed. If anything, it is stiffer with the new struts and adjustments to the torsion setup.
The sway bar does not have any rust on it, I'm lucky. My question, I guess, is can the sway bar just plain old wear out? It is 37 yrs old now.
I got to drive the 914 to work today. What fun. It was 75 degrees and very nice. It has been a long time since I have driven the car any distance because of its rude behavior. With the rear sway bar disconnected, it reminded me of driving my mom's Caprice Classic when I was 16. Lots of swaying and delayed reaction. But it was fun anyway.
