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.

It will depend on the backspacing of the wheels you are using, and will also depend on your definition of "fit".

Did a 97 a few years back and there was rubbing on the frame at full lock and a bit of rubbing on the plastic closest to the door. Had to trim a bit to make it quit. This was on stock rims.
