It's not a terrible thing...your Jeep will be fine with the axles slightly off center. Some people freak over it; some just don't like the way it looks. Regardless, the way to fix it is with an adjustable track bar.
OK, so with enough lift your axles can shift right to left.

How can adjustable LCA's fix that or was I reading that post wrong?

ETA: NM, adjustable trac bar, that makes sense.

Final report on this thread. Installed the synergy balljoints Saturday, beat up the undercarriage Sunday and got my alignment done yesterday. Today I couldn't be happier with the way my jeep is handling, much better than stock for my preference.

My caster from synergy's recommended 23.5" was 7.3-7.4 deg. I had the shop adjust to 6.1-6.2 deg. My eyeball alignment in garage wasn't bad as the toe in was just a bit out of spec. (Double the target setting) Camber is on edge of spec but running on inside of tires which IMO will wear even on tires since outside seems to wear faster due to sharp turning. Best part of it all... the shop discounted my alignment job $20 to $60 because the lca's were so easy to adjust! They told me how much of a pita the other adj lca's are and that they charge more to adjust them. But for some reason discounted my job instead of charging normal price. That's it for now.

You'd be REALLY impressed if you'd replace all the rubber bushings with Currie JJ's. That's when things get really awesome.

Glad it rides better now, I can't believe the difference after replacing my Ball Joints and LCA's, night and day.
