offset front and rear axles?

i have noticed that my front axle sticks out further on the drivers side, and the rear sticks out further to the pass side? do i need adj track bars/brackets? i only have a 2" bb lift?

They do that because of the lift and the track bars being too short.

Getting adjustable ones would be a good ideal, although the amount of change from a bb isn't enough to damage anything.

If you plan on going higher, I'd definitely recommend getting some new track bars.

You can for the front, but it will weaken an already flimsy mount. The rear(if lifted any taller) will need a relocation bracket to move the track bar to the top of the axle.
