Torsion keys are a bad idea, there are alot of threads regarding these and issues they can cause. Extra wear and tear on ball joints and all that jazz. Most people who have them have taken them off. the AAL isnt a bad thing. YOu can do 2" inch shackles.

Adding those keys will crank the t-bars beyond their limits which will result in a faster wear on your ball joints and everything in that area. Its just to much stress for them to handle.

Please search this as others have had issues with them. If you have cranked your t-bars maybe you need to get #1 bars, or its time for a BL or a Suspension lift.
