Axle Centering Tolerances

After my 2" lift, my axles are shifted a little - front to driver side and rear to passenger side. Normal I know, but what is the most shift that's okay before needing an adjustable track bar or relocation bracket? My fronts not too bad, maybe 1/2" difference, but in the back my passenger side tire sticks out from the flare about 2" and the drivers side about 1".

It seems to drive fine. Just wondering of any long term problems if I leave it as is. Could be a reason to get JKS ATBs!

Probably wouldn't be much of a problem on the road but off the road it could present a problem. I would get track bar relocation brackets and/or adjustable track bars.

I didn't worry about mine until I got over 3" of suspension lift, it was like that for years without issue. For only a 2" lift, I wouldn't worry about it at all because they're not that far off center with that small amount of lift.
When you have a choice, buy American.
