The reason for the torsion bars, is that they don't get in the way of the front cv axles on the 4X4s. Be kinda hard to have an axle through the middle of the coil spring. Non Edge/Sport 2wd Rangers have coils springs.

Cheapness. It's easier to bolt some torsion bars on, than to re-design the frame and mounting points.
