 I'm going to assume I've either binded in there as you've said, or I 
 haven't opened  the pinch enough.  But I have this suspicion that it's 
 related to there being no tension in the top arm coming through from 
 the other side from the other lower torsion arm because it's already 
 lowered [ that make sense? ]  In which case I'll have to figure out 
 something to use a a clamping device on the two arms. >>

I know this might sound like a stretch, but if you remove the upper ball 
joint on either the same side or the opposite side, it will remove any tension 
you're currently experiencing. I've run into the opposite of what you're 
deescribing when lowering the front of a couple type 3s. In my case I had to jack up 
the side I was working on to re-attach the ball joint, then lever the otherside 
off. From what it sounds like, you're being held in place by the other side 
thru the sway bar, due to the car being lowered (one side is holding the other 
in place). I hope this helps.
