alignment after lift or no?

I'm installing a 2.5 inch rock krawler lift on my JK. The kit only has lower control arms and springs and I've heard rumors that this small of a lift doesn't really require an alignment afterwards. What do you guys think?

May not have to recenter wheel with that but make sure your tire alignment is good. Lots of DIY write ups on how to do it in your driveway, super easy just need to do measurements tire to tire and adjust

It's a good idea to check your alignment after you disassemble your suspension and steering or introduce significant mods. Most let it go and then later complain about steering problems.
