The keys are to keep you from cranking the bars.

So you can lift it without messing with installing them. So if you get them there would be no need to crank them because the front would be higher then the back.

The FX4's and MOST other recent 4.0L 4x4 supercabs have the stiffest Ranger/Explorer bars which are #1.

Look on your driver door jamb label under SPG. The first character under SPG is the front torsion bar code.
