torsion keys

Are these any different from the factory torsion keys?

I honestly don't know but I was told that by putting them on you can basically do the same thing as cranking the t-bars but they help keep some of the travel and ride quality.

If I wasn't planning on a suspension lift i would get them and try them out.

So if I plan on lifting the front up two inches, would it be wise to go ahead and install these? Would these get rid of any premature wear, accelerated torsion fatigue, etc....over if I were to just crank the rods with the factory keys?

Actually, those keys have a different index to them. They will put additional stress on the bars. I would use them for a trailer/beauty queen, but not for a serious offroad rig.
