The old struts were obviously weak and it's almost certain the torsion
bars were tightened to compensate before I bought the car. My new
struts cause the doors to fly open like a rocket, and that's not the
struts' fault. Quite frankly I can't imagine why anyone would crank up
the torsion bars to save a measly hundred bucks on struts. Anyway,
after I reset mine I should never have to touch them again - just
replace the struts when the doors start to sag.

Thanks to everyone for your input. I have the tools and info I need to
get this done, and my helper is coming over this evening. With any
luck I won't be back here begging for a new rear windshield and/or
torsion bar later tonight.
