rear suspension

I have a pug 405 estate 1996 just noticed that 1 side of the car (rear) is quite lower than the other, anyone have any ideas what the problem maybe?

for some bizarre reason the do sit slightly lower one side as standard so quite often the can appear to be lopsided if say the fuel cell is full or there is something in the boot.
If it has become excessive then the bearings could of collapsed in the rear beam, cheaoest fix is to swap the beam rather than overhaul, if there is no play in the trailing arms from bearing collapse you could possibly get away with readjusting the torsion bars to raise or lower the offending side.

How do you go about readjusting the torsion bar?
