It will be easier for you to remove the rear beam completely and do it of the van it's only 4 bolts and undo a few break lines. Will make life easier for you. Spend a bit of time spraying all bolts, nuts bars ect with wd40 .

Have just had the pleasure of removing both torsion bars to replace the trailing arm bearing which has destroyed itself. Just be persistent and keep at it eventually the torsion bars will come out. Make sure you have removed offset washer from both sides and be careful to follow the torsion bar to the other end so you don't remove the wrong bolt and offset washer. Soak the spline ends in releasing oil or something similar.
