or you could just answer the question for him. its simple.
it can put added stress on your front end but you should be ok, if youre really worried about wearing stuff out really quick dont max them out. i have had my tbars cranked for a year or more now and i havent had any trouble thus far with tie rods or ball joints. as far as gas mileage i dont think it really has an effect on it and if it does its not much. If and when you do crank them it wouldnt be a bad idea to have your truck aligned. cranking them will throw your angles off and could wear your tires unevenly.
As far as cranking them goes get a socket and a torque wrench or breaker bar i cant remember what size socket. lift the front end up off the ground when cranking them up to take any load off of the front end. Crank both adjustment bolts evenly. it easiest to crank one side and remember how many full turns you did and repeat to the opposite side. Also measure from the center of the wheel hub to the highest point of your wheel wells on both sides to double check the height is correct. after youre done, drive the truck around and check the height again. if its not at the height you like or one side is off compared to the other, redo steps until its correct.
