Cranking the bars is pointless. You may gain a 1/2 inch.
Do it the right way, not the cheap way.
Yes you would need an alignment, but understand you are changing the geometry of the suspension incorrectly and may not be able to get all angles back to factory spec.
You will want camber and toe in spec, as they will cause tire wear. You may not be able to get caster in spec, but that will more or less just change steering feel.
