Always get your alignment checked after messing with the suspension. Measure from the ground to the top of your wheel well, crank both bars the equal amount of turns, measure again. Continue to do this until its at a desirable height. I normally crank it 1/2 turns and check.

take a 13mm to the bolts. Crank em til your happy. Ball joints will wear out faster then before. and search. tons of torsion bar threads.
