front end/lift questions

Okay so as many of you already know, Im still chasing DW in my jeep - on that note, sorry for yet another thread about it. I have determined that it has the original track bar, but not in the original hole (brace? mount?). I have a 2" suspension lift, 1" spacers and 1" body lift. So about 4" lift total I guess.

What is the 'generally accepted' amount of lift where you would need an adjustable track bar? How about sway bars and control arms? As far as I can tell, these are all stock on my jeep still.

Thanks for any help/insight you can provide.

In most cases 3" and over adj front track bar.
4" adj control arms plus rear adj track bar..
