Agreed.

It's funny, my buddy and I were discussing this while we made the
adjustments. I had prepped him with the whole "it's going to be
difficult to hold, you'll get tired fast, if we screw up we'll break
the rear window", etc. He had a theory. He said, "People must talk
these procedures up because they want to believe the car's maintenance
is just as exotic and unconventional as the car itself. It sounds so
much better to have these super fragile, incredibly dangerous torsion
bars that must be adjusted with the utmost in professional precision."
