Hard to say from the angle of your photo, but it looks like they are slightly "up," which is bad. Jack it up and see how much the swing arm swings down. Take a photo aligned with the axle tube towards the wheels, low, so the angle of the swing arms can be seen, both sitting loaded and jacked up.

George,

Come to the rally at Lake San Antonio in October and you'll probably find all the advice and commentary you'd like. Should be an easy trip for you. Just down the road a bit.

Here's a link to the rally page:

It appears that the torsions arms, as they go rearward, are going uphill.

If thats the case then the axles are "done".

You can quickly learn how to check them out yourself, by reading the following article.
