Yeah..I never though about that..good point . I guess it only messes with the alignment dramatically if it's dropped 2" or more.

I'm not sure bro, jeff or josh would be the guys to ask. They would know more than me. Sorry

Well you should be able to get it within spec by sliding out the lower control arm unless you are doing a drastic drop. If that's the case you can get the moog adjustable upper ball joints for $60 bucks each side on rockauto.com. Be warned I had one break on me tho... But I have a lift which puts more stress on them and my jeep just plain hates me. I also found some from SPC uppers (eibachs supplier) for like 80 bucks each on Amazon.
