Wheel alignment is not required as the front end design of the JK is such that there is no toe in/out change with a lift and camber and caster are both fixed. However the turnbuckle on the drag link will need adjusting to recentre the steering wheel - trial and error usually only takes 2 or 3 goes with a few short trips on a straight road to get it spot on.
Caster adjustment at this height increase is also not really required, but if you go higher then the caster will decrease to the point the steering will get very light, not self centre properly and increase the chances of wobbles developing into death wobbles. In this case its time for adjustable control arms.
Glad to hear the links are tighter now, I have a feeling the ones I got may have been an older design bush or something, and I didnt get spare zirks with shorter threads either!

|JPWheelin||Looks good! Did you get your issues with the swaybar links worked out?|

You can not get those on without better backspacing. You will rub your sway bar at full turn. The rubbing is not from the height but the width on the back side of the tire. 275's are the largest width for the most part you can have with no rubbing. 285/70/17 will rub very slightly but enough to damage a tire over time. Not sure where Teraflex got that number but they are absolutely wrong. But then too they may just be talking about height not width.
