Putting in 1.5 inch spacers in front and 1 inch in rear to level 1999 TJ. Do I need front wheel alignment ?

Yes, any change in ride height via suspension will require an alignment. The good news is is toe is the only thing that will change enough to worry about and you can do it yourself with a tape measure.

Actually 2 things need adjusted... toe and center the steering wheel....

Adjust the toe and then get a piece of masking tape n go for a drive.... BE CAREFUL and put the tape top center of the steering wheel while driving straight at 30 mph or more...

Then head back home... park with that tape again top center and shut the engine off but leave ignition forward one click ie unlocked... then adjust the draglink until the steering wheel is straight... done...

another thing to keep in mind is it may hinder your ride quality due to shocks entending, you could get longer shocks or get shock extensions to fix this, or you may be fine with the ride
