Teraflex leveling kit install question

Got mine on the doorstep today and will install tomorrow. I was wondering if it is necessary/beneficial to loosen the control arms/track bar and retorque when done and back on the ground or if that is just a waste of time with the minimal height difference.

Absolutely. You won't need to loosen the UCAs but you will loosen the LCAs and trackbar. Drop it, shake it, then torque it.

Cigarettes are like squirrels. Both are perfectly harmless until you put them in your mouth and light them on fire.

Teraflex leveling kit install question

Personally I did not do it on my leveling kit, and everything installed and rides just fine. I personally don't see the need. I feel certain if it was needed, then the manufacturer who spent hundreds if hours designing, manufacturing, and testing the kit would say so in the instructions.
