I agree!!! :silly: Join the club. I gave mine a few turns on my truck. Nothing drastic, just to bring it up 1-2". Mine sees other than pavement (come on, PAVEMENT SUCKS), but the difference versus stock, isn't going to make my CVs or balljoints go to hell in the next few months. I've put 40k mi since I adjusted them, plus however many mi they had on them before that (I second owner of truck) and there are no signs of failure. I also cranked them on a '01 F150 my family has. It now has 100K mi and all original front parts.
The ride is the same. It feels the same, not stiffer like I have heard people say. I can't understand how it is to make your truck ride stiff. Think of a coil spring, then put a spacer on it (like a little kit for a dodge). The spring rate didn't change any. but the ride height did. Same principle for a torsion bar. By cranking the bolt on the key, you are changing the position of the key. Your not magically changing the spring rate of the torsion bar. You are simply moving one end of it.
Oh yeah, make sure you turn the bolts the same amount for each side.

you are putting more pressure on the "spring" forcing it to hold up the truck so the truck will not have as much give or travel
