2" inch lift+ need alignment?
 
I'm about to get my 2" inch Rocky Road lift installed this week and I was wondering if I need to have an alignment done after the install? Will I have any issues with anything like esp after install? Thanks:D

i'd say get it just to be safe. Dont even bother cheaping out when you can get an alignment for 75$ here at least. Better safe then sorry. But that's just me.

I noticed the handling was brutal after my RC lift, but after the alignment, it's quite a noticeable improvement.

Yes, anytime your doing work to the suspension always get an Alignment.

if you change out factory struts do you think you need an alignment also?

^^ YES.. I had noticeable wear issues after I changed the front struts to bilsteins then I got an alignment and it fixed the issue.

I was informed by the guys at kevinsoffroad that an alignment is needed, even with the daystar leveling kit. Its not needed immediately, but soon.

I am going for the lifetime alignment at firestone. The gal at kevinsoffroad investigated, found a nearby firestone and even sent me a $10 coupon from firestones website.

after my lift I did'nt do the aligment immediately...I procrastinated about a month and a half haha, but after the alignment I felt a big improvement! especially if you drive on the highway alot (me) again you dont have to do it the same day you lift it, but get to it asap

Even when I do really minor suspension work I always get an alignment. It will keep the front end parts from wearing prematurely, and the cost of new tires is gonna be a hell of a lot more than the 60-100 for an alignment.

Any time I do work to the suspension or steering, I always get an alignment as soon as I can to prevent wear issues on the tires and the Jeep.
