Does this pic show that I have one or two torsion bars? I have added the spoiler to my trunk and it does not stay up in place. I have 2 bars but they are at different mounts. Thanks in advance.

Notice how the torsion bar is installed—it is adjustable. The second post photos show the torsion bar engaged in the rear-most point, where the first post has them in the middle.  There are three slots available.

Thanks for the pic and advice, I see the difference in the position of the bar and will try to adjust mine this weekend. More to follow.

Sort of depends on if your spoiler is Ford or repo. Some repo's might be heavier.

Not necessarily, the repo that was on my car was made of ABS and much lighter than the Ford one I now have on. I had to increase the tension to max. I agree, some aftermarket spoilers might be heavier the some others. It also might depend on whether the spoiler has been placed in the correct position.
