I have 30,000 miles on my torsion lift with no problems I am aware of. The alignment is a must in my opinion.

As I posted in your other topic asking the same thing . . . it puts stress on the upper balljoints and you'll have positive camber after you do it.

Negative camber = / \ (tires in that position, where the toe moves outward)

Positive camber = \ / (tires in that position, where the toe moves inward)

With leveling it off for an inch, you'll be fine. You might still need an alignment however, but you may not being that it's not a ton of movement.

It is... / \ is negative camber, it moves the top of the tire inward torward the truck.

When you crank the t-bars it will give you more negative camber.

You'll be fine. At worst you'll need an alignment down the line but you shouldn't notice anything for a while. Go for it.
