I was wondering if this was to much of a torsion bar crank?

how many turns did you do on each key?
watch the boots on the cv shafts...they can slip off and toss all the lube all over and if you let the joint go dry you will be getting a new one soon. did you measure before and after? "common" rule is to go 1.5" higher for a "safe" torsion bar lift.

No I didn't measure and a guy I know who works at advance said he usually cranks them all the way in and cranks them out 5 turns that's what I originally did. Do the CV angles look to severe?
