I'm lowering my '59 Chrysler, I was told that turning the bolt doesn't lower or raise the car like the later ones, say a '65. Is this true? If so, what is the best way to lower the car? I was told turning that bolt 'weakens' the torsions and they could break!!! I know on my '65 Dodge, I turned the bolts, cut down the stoppers and haven't had a problem! Thanks....Eric
