you will deff. need an alinement. and there should be a little bolt at the end of the t bar that you will see under the truck.

When i cranked my torsion bars it went up 1/4 inch per turn. So you'd be looking at raising it less then an inch if you did it 3 turns. That really wouldnt be all that noticable!

if you ever decide to do it, it's this bolt, and the one on the opposite side

When i got my vehicle aligned after the torsion bar crank the mechanic said that it really wasnt off that much at all and that it probablly wouldnt have effected anything. But like i said before i only did 4 turns. Some people crank them till they dont go in anymore!
