With my torsion key bolts all the way out the bars weren’t super tight once the control arm was loose from the spindle. I just did ball joints though not arms.

The best thing I have found for popping stuck bars is a big mf air hammer.
I used to battle them on Mopars, I upgraded my air hammer to one of these:

It worked great for the project and also made pulling torsion bars a much less painless process.
Squirt, drink beer, Brap Brap Brap it's usually out.

Had to move this thing to my dad's house last night. Didn't do bad. Probably would loaded. Lol. The exhaust drone was HORRIBLE 😂

Luckily I found four or six inch drop receiver that I had to flip to make the trailer sit flat and the tongue jack not scraped the ground, lol.
