torsion keys

i understand that torsion keys are bad for your suspension but if i were to keep the aftermarket torsion keys in and crank the torsion bars down would that be the same as putting the stock torsion keys back in and cranking the torsion bars up 1.5-2"? im trying to keep from replacing the torsion keys seems like a hassle. also whats the difference between cranking up 1.5-2" with stock keys compared to putting the 1.5-2" torsion keys?

there is nothing wrong with having the keys in as long as you don't over crank them. It is just that people can get that extra height out of them and keep on cranking them up
