Any one heard of these?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Lift-...spagenameZWDVW


Just searching the ol ebay, and I found these. I'm guessing they have been out for a while, and I was just curious if anyone has heard anything about them. Even though they claim to add 1-3 inches I'm sure it still subtracts your over-all negative travel?

I know you can crank the t bars already on the truck, but it takes away from your negative travel, will these allow you to effectively lift the truck with out taking that much away in neg travel?

Don't buy the keys. They are worthless. Just crank the bars a bit.

re-indexed torsion keys (like the ones you're talking about) do the EXACT same thing as tightening the torsion bar adjuster bolts. You will get the same amount of "lift," and will have the same increased tire wear and balljoint wear, and will also lose the same amount of uptravel, or negative travel.
