not for the truck but for the tires, just get one before you put the new tires on. Nothing worse than ruining a new set of tires in 5K

ya you can tell you need an alignment the top of your tires are bowed out like this \ / but not that bad. that truck has been wrecked before hasn't it? the gap from the bed to the cab is huge and if you look at your step bar its higher in the front than in the back.

Looks good.

You might want to take those flares off and see what's going on with the rust behind them.

I cranked my t-bars over 10 000km ago and have not gotten an alignment and my tires show no visible signs of improper wear.

I got my trucks torsion bars adjusted a year and a half ago and still haven't gotten an alignment. I asked the place where I get my tires rotated for free to check and see if I need an alignment they've said no the 2 times I went in.

It will settle after the first cranking. Over time it will settle more because the bars will start to sag
