Default Torsion bar removal

So I finally got my new, thicker torsion bars and I was so excited to install them. I started on taking the old ones out. I got the end cap off and the snap ring. That is when I hit a dead end. The torsion bars are both rusted in so I can't get them out. I know I can't beat on them with a hammer and ive tried a punch and hammer. I have been stuck on this for a week. Anyone have any ideas or help possibly from experience?I sprayed wd40 and a few sprays. None of those helped at all.

Fire and heat along with some homemade PB blaster (50% ATF and 50% acetone) should do the trick.
