Default something broke

I went outside to put my 1973 duster away for the winter ,I thought it had a flat tire on the left front but tire was inflated and way up into fender so much that I cant turn the steering wheel drove the car last weekend to a car show to get some drive time no problem at all.Jacked it up and found nothing out of place except t bar adjusting screw not in right place so is it possible the socket in the lower control arm spun? or are there other places to look. I was lucky this happened in my drive way and sitting still . many thanks

Idea

It broke the torsion bar mount either out of the K-frame end or at the back. Very common and both are repairable. Look for signs of rust at both ends.

Front end the easiest thing is just replace the K frame. If there is not alot of rust you may be able to repair it.

The rear end will need a Saf-T-Cap repair section. People give them a lot of crap, but I have used one and it is fine. Would I use one on a real race car or a high dollar restoration? No, but they work fine on a daily driver type car.

I came across a web sight that sell the complete cross member around $ 350 new ,don't know the quality. but its been to cold to find the problem ,as to which t-bar end failed . this is a rust free car so I'm a little surprised this happened, and didn't see any signs of the welds cracked(no rust streaks )

Did you establish what the problem was?

How did you fix it?

And he may or may not get notifications of answers to his question...

I'm curious to know.
