Jumping Front End

This is just an idea I was thinkin when I read your post. What might be your problem is that since you've added those Rancho rs9000s, and the New Torsion Bars is your front suspension is now alot more firm. Try lowering the air pressure in your front tires by 5 psi. If it makes a difference, but it's not a big improvement, try another 5 psi. I ran 33x12.50x15 Yokohamas with a 6" lift & dual shock set up on my 4x4 Toy, and I had to run only about 15-20 psi, otherwise I couldn't keep it on the road. So try it, it should help. But it wouldn't hurt to have the alignment checked.

Thats the first thing I would check after changing so much of your front susp. Then if it still rides like a Bucking Bronco, try lowering the Air psi in your tires. What make/size tires are you runing? Also, did the torsion bars raise your front end? How Hi?

Changing the torsion bars can still cause alignment probs. Those new shocks are gas charged, which is like putting air shocks on your front end. It makes your susp very stiff. If it were my trk, I would drop the air psi in the front tires 5 psi, then get the frt end aligned ASAP. Let me know what haps.
