Not at all, not even close. You won't have that problem until you get a really super-flexy suspension at about a 4" or taller height.

lift front of jeep. support by frame. drop axle to full droop. turn steering wheel all the way to one side.

check the brake lines and see if they're tight. if they are, you need new brake lines. this is a function of shock length, not necessarily lift height.
