In 4x, with the front wheels pulling, the wheels will toe in if the steering and suspension aren't strong enough to keep them straight. The steering linkage is probably flogged, it's a weak point on these, especially if you're running a lift. There are a few options for beefing it up.

Hey cheers I was wondering if it might be due to the torsion still up to high, but Yea I'm currently looking for a left hand steering box an also going to do the 2wd mod out a 88 navara complimented by a steering dampener, hopefully that will sort it, and yeap broken heaps of tie rods luckily I have a boot load

All too familiar a condition I saw in my Pathfinder. There was a time I was running some 10" wide wheels and I was doing that all the time. All I had to do was drop into 4lo and hit the throttle on a good traction surface and it would bend all 4 tierods, the idler arm and destroy the ball joints in the center link. I wound up running Hells Revenge in Moab in 2wd because I wrecked the steering so bad after a couple days of trail running and the climb up a fin at the beginning of the trail mangled things. Had to use an 8 foot T-post to bend the idler arm down enough that I could turn with just a little rubbing on the frame. 

Terrible design in the steering linkage.

Definitely a terrible design, Although my last WD I had for 11 years without any hassles.
I ran 0 offset rims with 31x10.5R15s, anything bigger is too much for the front end and you're asking for failure.
