Crawl under your truck and crank your t/bars! the left one first then even the front end out with the right. The cheapest and easiest way to do it.

You may go thru ball joint pretty quick. I have 38k on mine and they have been cranked almost the whole time. No problems yet.

the lower ball joints will wear out sooner than not cranked.....really imo no biggy. $100 every two years, no biggy. the time is a complete guess. I got 84k or so out of my stock set, was max cranked for 40k of that. Rides stiffer. Some have complained about the front end feeling "light" at freeway speeds, but i havn't noticed that.
