Depends on how far you crank them. If you crank them all the way then yes it will ruin your front end. But either way if you crank them a lil bit or alot it will make your ride worse. I have mine cranked about 1 inch.

the other day we leaned about t bars in auto tech, not sure how much it'll screw up ur truck. But I know it will stiffin your ride a lot. My friend has his exploader lifted like hell and tbars cranked all the way, and his suspension is hard. If that makes sense at all haha.

The more you tighten them, the less room they have to move, thats why it makes the ride stiffer (if thats a word lol)

I have my torsion bars adjusted so the front and the back of the Ranger are level, which I'm guessing was about 3 inches. although I could have cranked them another 2 inches, but I'm not into the "lifted front, lowered rear" look.
