Alignment help for 4" lifted WJ

I recently purchased new 32"A/T tires, 17x9 inch rims and a 4" rough country x series suspension lift for my wj. I don't know if I should buy a lifetime alignment from Firestone or not. How often should I get an alignment? Is it the lifetime worth it? If not what are the price ranges for a normal one and where should I get it? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

Re: Alignment help for 4" lifted WJ

Find out if they are going align it to factory specs. If they are don't do it. Once you alter ride height those specs go out the window. Caster & camber technically are not adjustable the only thing left is toe. I have a '04 JGC with a 2" lift stock size BF Goodrich All Terrains. My local Firestone told they would align it to my specs. Well after 600 miles of driving I noticed wear (feathering) on my brand new tires. Took it another shop got a print out & it was set to factory specs. Took vehicle back to Firestone & showed them the wear. Passenger tires are made differently then off road tires. If you're going with an off road tire & if you have full time 4wd, I recommend setting toe at zero. Leave caster & camber alone. I have 6K miles on my tires and they are showing no signs of wear.
