Torsion Bar Keys

What exactly do torsion bar keys do? I can adjust my torsion bar without them right?

yes you can adjust the torsion bars with out keys but you run the risk of breaking something...and your ball joints wear out faster

here's how: http://www.therangerstation.com/tech...orsionBar.html

They re index your t-bars and give you more lift,but they also wear out front end parts alot faster. they are not worth it

Wouldn't cracking up your T bars have almost the same effect as keys?
When i cranked them 2 " on my old ranger I was constantly working on the front end with boots and, bearings. Oh and wheel wouldnt stay ballanced
