Backspacing determines how far the wheels will stick out. The higher the number, the less they stick out.

There's a sticky thread at the top portion of the wheels/tires forum about backspacing.
Go check it out for some good info.

yes the torsion bars only lift the front end up enough to be level with the rear. but you will more than likely need a front end alignment after doing so.
