If you had the garage install it then they should have done an alignment too. An adjustable track bar will recenter your front axle an help it drive straight. A lot of lift kits don't include this.
Make sure they check your toe-in. Your tires in the front should do this / \ slightly and not this \ /. If you have toe-out \ / the tires will want to go their own way and wander on the road. If you have slight to in / \ they will grab to the center an help you drive straight. Too much toe-in and you can get uneven tire wear.
Your castor angle changes with a lift as well. You would need adjustable front upper OR lower control arms to adjust this. Cam bolts aren't really an option. You can get by with that size lift without worrying about this too much, but its an option.
At least have them give you an alignment report and post it for us to take a look.
