Sure they will.
They are a stiffer spring and therefor require less preload to achieve the same amount of lift.
This is the 4th truck I've done torsion crank on, one I put sway away bars (Sway away brand torsion bars)on and got almost three inches with changing the upper control arm...Which, by the way...why don't any lift comanies offer the upper arm only for rangers??
You can juice another 1.5 just by putting a tube arm up there.
The CV's can handle huge travel (in most trucks, anyway)...
