Default wheels looked angled in after torsion crank...

I recently put bigger tires on my truck and cranked the torsion bars... but when i look at it straight on it looks like the wheels are angled into the truck... does anyone know why this is or what can fix it?

My buddy told me that his friends looked the same way after he cranked the torsion bars and he put some wheel spacers on his front wheels and it put them back to being perfectly parallel but I dont want to buy spacers if first of all im not really sure its gonna work and secondly if spacers are even good or safe to have...?

Thanks

you need an alignment it sounds like your camber is off.

oh really? yah i really need to get one cause i got my bearings replaced recently and i still havent done it since i cranked 'em but an alignment will for sure put them back to normal again?? I didn't think getting that done would change it that drastically

yea it will and it will mess up your tire wear really fast to. Trust me I know between the little bit I ran it and the previous owneer never rotating or balancing, my tires are awful and vibrate and give me a horrible ride. even cranking them like a turn just to lower half an inch will throw it off. go get an alignment

i had my t-bars cranked over a year ago with a alignment then they sagged then my alignment was way off then i maxed them out over a month ago and i had it checked now my alignment is perfect. just a quick alignment then you should be set.
