Torsion Bars Bent Differently?

I don't plan on ever towing our trailer more than a few hundred miles, so I took one of the cheaper options and purchased a Camco EAZ Lift 48058 (1000/10000 capacity). I got it assembled and leveled the other night without too much drama, other than having to go buy a cheap 3/4 drive socket set from Harbor Freight so I could swap out the 2 5/16 ball that it came with for a 2 inch. With 3 loose links, my rear bumper when loaded is less than an inch below it's normal height and the torsion bars are almost parallel to the ground so it looks like it's set up properly.

My question is - when I have both torsion bars installed in the coupler and just hanging loose without the chains tensioned, one torsion bar hangs about an inch lower than the other (when compared at the rear end where the chains attach). Is this a problem or is this just normal manufacturing variation? I'm a little OCD and probably just worrying about nothing.

Is there any play in the bars up and down? If so, it's not that big of a deal. My question is why do you have a 1000/10,000 WDH with a 2" ball? Nothing with that kind of weight will have a 2" ball hitch.

It's my understanding that the coupler is the same for all the Camco hitches, regardless of which weight rating you get, the only difference is the torsion bars. I purchased the 1000# one in case I ever get a bigger trailer. It was also my thought that I'd rather have 1000# bars that keep it level with a few hundred pounds of capacity left, rather than 600 or 800# bars that I'd have to have totally cinched down just to level the rig.
