    superbee helped me. u want to drill a hole thru the cross member. there is a block the torsion key sits on (where u pulled the screws from) u want to drill a decent sized holed under that block towards the lip of the bottom of the cross member. then u can put ur old bolts thru ur new holes. i used huge grade 8 bolts that were 5/8 thick u could use those too. make sure u use grade 8 bolts . then u use a two jaw puller to release the tension on the block. which means u tighten the pullerr. pulle that block out after ur new bolt was in then slowly let it down. keys are dangerous so do it all in a slow manor

    What it does is relocates the angle of the key . It sittin on the bolt now makes the key sit lower which lowers your ride

    you can slam it all the way down,you can take the keys out and jack the frontend all the way up and reinstall the keys and it will be slammed.
    If you can't do your custom work yourself then sell your ride.
