New lift delima

So I just got my 2.5 lift kit for a 2007 jeep Sahara unlimited 4 door. It says on the instructions that the draglink must be adjusted to center the steering wheel . I think I know how to go that but do I need a whole front end alignment? If do do they adjust the draglink when they do that ? Next it says I may experience rubbing between the front drive shaft and the automatic transmission pan. Had anyone else had this problem? Is it just during extreme articulation or all the time? There fix was an aftermarket drive shaft which if course they sell! Thanks for the help

with a 2.5...not really, just do the chalk test. theres not much an alignment shop can do unless you have adjustable control arms. just fix your steering and get up and go.

If do do they adjust the draglink when they do that ? Next it says I may experience rubbing between the front drive shaft and the automatic transmission pan. Had anyone else had this problem?
i'm not sure about the pre 2012's. maybe you can ask a moderator to move this thread so more experienced members can give you an answer.

Is it just during extreme articulation or all the time? There fix was an aftermarket drive shaft which if course they sell! Thanks for the help
