Torsion bar crank...first attempt ever

Since I put these 31x10.5s on everybody said I should crank the bars. Did some reading/learning and tried it out today. The passenger side was about 3/8" lower than the drivers side at stock height since I've owned the truck but I worked on it for awhile today, drove it, adjusted, drove it, adjusted it, etc. about 4 times until I got about a 1.25" up on the drivers side, and about an 1 5/8" up on the passenger side. All evened up and about an 1 1/4 total lift on the front. On the drivers side for instance I had a 34" from the floor measurement to the fender lip and now have a 35 1/4" measurement and even on both sides. Does seem to look a lot better especially with the new wheels and tires and the already lumber cart ride didn't get affected much. You think I should get an alignment now?

Yes get the alignment unless you want your new tires to wear unevenly.

Looks good. It would look even better if you turned those tires so the black letters are showing, but that's just me. Definitely get an alignment.
