Torsion bar wear?

Rebuiling my front and rear suspension.  How do you determine if it's time for new torsion bars?  Mine have some paint scrapes and minor imperfections in the surface including a spot where a previous owner dug in a little bit with a vise grip.  I read somewhere that it's important that the surface is blemish free.  I also read somewhere that you just grease them back up in reinstall the old ones.

Any guidance appreciated.
