Nope. Just make sure you do the drivers side first, there is always more threads for the adjuster on the passenger than driver for any given height. My drivers side was cranked all the way and the passenger still had 5-6 threads left and both sides sat equal.

You'll be putting more stress on your upper ball-joints, and depending how far you crank the bars, you could cause them to start binding against the arm, wearing them out faster. Also, your alignment will be thrown off and your camber will most likely become positive, so be sure to get an alignment afterwards.

I never got an alignment it didn't need one.

And to correct trenton it would have more "negative" camber.

it is normal to have that much of a difference. it will also change depending on how much gas you have in the tank because it is on the drivers side!!
