Default wheel alignment

how risky is it if i give my tbars a couple of cranks and not get a wheel alignment right away....reason for not getting an alignment asap is that my old man thinks that im just gonna destroy my bearings so he doesnt want me to crank the torsion bars, but i think i can easily get away with it, its just he would find out if i got an alignment
