Trunk lid springs too weak

I re-installed the trunk lid torsion bar springs on my 65 GTO that the body had removed for whatever reason and have them both set on the highest tension setting (after trying both low and medium) but the trunk lid still will not stay up on its own. I imagine these torsion bars fatigue after time, but are there any hacks to make them work again? As far as I can tell, these are not in reproduction.
