Why would you ever want to increase the lift?
The Touareg is not some insensitive, archaic, pathetic excuse for a truck. If the tightening of the nuts on the front wheels have an effect on the vibration/no vibration issues, what do you think will happen when you increase the lift without dealing with other suspension mods and still want to keep the ride quality. The factory spends millions on design/engineering so we can have the right amount of ride quality/performance/cost/serviceability, etc, etc...
increasing ride height WILL change ride quality, stress on CV joints, reducing articulation, polar inertia will change, anti dive/anti squat attitudes will change, not to mention possible bump steer issues. If all these items and more, is taken into account then you could have a properly set up Touareg. These Touaregs are fully independent, multilink suspension setup, not some solid axle where the body is lifted and the central diff is in the exact same height!!! Smart??!! I think not. If you looking for increased ground clearance because the body is grounding out on rocks, mud, etc... then increase the sidewall ratio on tyres. add skid plates if required
You are correct in having a bit of reluctance in adjusting suspension, ride height, etc...!
