The link to the Article was in fact dead, but the lower one worked. It is now fixed.

I doubt you will ever find a number associated with how much more wear occurs after a t-bar lift. There are just too many contributing factors to actually quantify it.

As far as how it will ride, it will definitely be more truck like.

i talked to a master tech about this and he said as long as a front end alignment is done after the t-bar crank you should not have any problems. i imagine wear is still gonna increase.

It will most definitely be harder on your ball joints and CV shafts.

a front end alignment would help out a little though right?

It would help keep your tires from wearing out faster, yes. It will not correct for the angle change though and the angle change is what will accelerate the wear on the ball joints and CV shafts.
