Axle Offcenter

After having my Rancho 2.5" lift on my 97 TJ Sport with a Dana 30 front axle for about a month now I noticed that I too have the off center front axle. Not bad, about 3/8 to 1/2 to the drivers side. I have heard that this can put stress on the rest of the components upfront. Should I install an Adjustable track bar. I still have the original diff cover and bump stops. I noticed that JKS puts a disclaimer about having a Dana 30 and using the 0-3" adjustable track bar. Would I need to install longer bump stops. Would I be best just to leave well enough alone. The Jeep drives great, no wobble and no steering wander.

Mine has been shifted for almost 2 years. Good tire wear, no issues whatsoever. Doesn't bother me a bit.
Violence may not be the answer but it sure cuts down on the stupid questions
