torsion bar is made to adjust
if you want it higher you need to spin the torsion bar
depending on how it's made of course
this should be professionally done

The camber will go way off only if you go too high, there is a limit.
Also your top cradle will bottom-out on the bump stop and the ride will be terrible.
How high are you trying to raise it?

Correct u can only raise a torsion bar so much,

Safely!

Over tightening can cause failure if a torsion bar, stock or aftermarket!

Some vehicles the bar can be reset, we did a van the front and back is plumb level and the torsion are released all the way, so it can only be tightened now!

U might have to do a body lift or can look at a balljoint spacer!

For Just a 2 inch lift you will get away with cranking the torsion bars [although indexing may be needed as these bars are very old by now].
At such moderate levels of lift, you may need only do the top ball joint inversion.
When doing your camber though, it may be possible to run out of adjustment on the top cradle so check that too, take a peek at your CV joints' departure angle while you are at it :wink:
