Torsion Keys?

Im just looking for a bunch of information on torsion keys. How they work? How there installed, and what kind of performance will you get out of them?

They have the same effect as cranking your torsion bars. I've only heard bad things about them, they put your front suspension at extreme angles and cause the ball joints to wear out super fast. They also make it ride horribly.

Stay with your factory keys. Theres no performance factor. Toying with keys over stresses torsion bars, and does all the bad things 04blackedge stated above.

Do a search....D has posted some really good info on this mod, as he has played around with keys many times, and all with bad effects. There are some "believers" on RPS that run them. For me, no.
