You can affect ride height with the torsion bar but this not a good idea. First of all, it is only going to affect the one corner that the bar is supporting so if you only have them in the front then it will not lower the rear and you will need to adjust both sides the same or the truck will lean to one side.
The main reason you don't want to do this is because the torsion bar is not meant to have little to no tension to it. This is the main component bearing the most sprung weight. If you take the weight off of this bar then you will just be transferring the weight to the other components. Not only will this add wear to the other components, mainly the shock, but the ball joint as well.
Here is a link that explains this a little bit more:
In short, I would not recommend doing this to achieve the look of the truck that you want. They make many kits out there to do this correctly. Thanks
