lifted Jeep question

Dumb question.
I was getting my oil changed the other day and the tech. called me over to see something he said is not right. The jeep was on a lift with all 4 tire hanging in the air, and the front end was shifted over about an inch or two. I went to 4 wheel parts and they said that is normal for a lifted JK. I thought I would ask ya'll. Its a 2013 JKU rubicon with a 3.5 inch RK lift. I wish I would have taken a picture, but I didn't

Adjustable track bars. Didn't the tech mention this?

It does have adjustable track bars. When the jeep is on the ground, everything is straight.

Your fine.

The adj track bar/s you have that center your axles while on the ground perform the same way once the jeep is lifted as the stock would under similar circumstances.

Your adj track bar once set to length remains fixed. If the axles are allowed to drop fully they are going to shift just as the stock non adj track bars would do under a full axle drop.
