2008 F250 Tailgate Assist Spring?

Something "popped" loose in the tailgate when I was raising it. Tailgate got awful heavy. I can't see where any springs, etc, are in there that may have broken. Anybody have any info on this problem?

Theres a torsion bar in the 08+(???) tailgates that help lessen the weight you have to push against when you lift and lower it. You probably snapped something on that. I have no idea if you can just replace that or the whole tailgate
