Vehicle lower on one side due to cracked insulator for torsion bar on Mercedes-Benz ML430

Problem Description and Possible Solution

These vehicles have torsion bar-type springs for the front suspension. If the vehicle appears to be lower on one side (in front), the hard plastic insulator for the torsion bar may have cracked and split. There may also be a squeaking noise (when driving over bumps) from below the front seats if this insulator has broken.

Just had the torsion bar bushings replaced. The annoying clicking/creaking sound is now gone.
The front end looks lower than the back end.
