my torsion bar bolt looks like this, and if you can see it the nut is all the way at the bottom. is this normal? im woried about the nut coming off because of how far it is down the bolt or worse bending it while im off roading.

What year is your truck? Make a signature so we know what we are dealing with.

Return those keys. They are a waste of money and you should have searched around here first. The bolt looks too loose. The stock keys could have been used and all you had to do was tighten them (that bolt farther in then it is)

its a 99. The bolt itself is on tight isnt loose or anything. the nut is on pretty tight i need a wrench to even adjust it,so its not going any where. Im just wondering will the vibrations from driving make it fall of if it is securly tightened? should i have 4 wheelparts give it alook it make sure?

That is the factory threadlocking compound which is no longer effective now that the bolt has been repositioned.

Just return the keys and crank your stock ones to level your truck
