Why not give Chuck Moreland at Elephant a call and pick his brain about all your specs.
He's usually available and more than happy to offer his advice. After all, you spent a lot of money buying his components! My good Pelican friend TIRWIN consulted with him numerous times on his Elephant suspension rebuild and had Chuck rebuild his shocks with digressive valving, he could not be more pleased!

I suspect it'll be cheaper, easier, and more effective to revalve the shocks than swap the torsion bars. The latter involves getting the ride height correct, then getting the car aligned and corner balanced again. After that, you'll still have 40-year-old shock technology...I think getting the shocks revalved is $100/ea (plus shipping).

It's worth noting that the harshness may not be due to the torsion bars or shocks. For me it was mostly the sway bars and monoball shock tower mounts:

Incurable harsh ride
