I got an alignment at the same time as they installed the lift but they did say that the front end had to be adjusted. I had mine installed by a local tire company and bought the tires and the spidertrax spacers installed at the same time. The tech that installed it has a jeep and had no problem installing the Rocky Road 2.5 inch lift. He took most of a day to do it.

The tires and install cost for the lift was under $1,000. I think it was around $650 for the tires, (Bridgestone) and $350 for the lift install, spacers install and alignment. The lift was $296 plus shipping, and the spidertrax 1.5 inch spacers were about $240 with shipping included.

Hope that helps.

Yes, definitely need to get it realigned. Had mine realigned and the shop that did it said that it was definitely off.

Good to know! On my ZJ, I always just did the tape-measure routine to adjust the toe in/out and realign the steering wheel, etc. With IFS, I'm imagining it's quite a bit different routine.

Tow in and camber both need to be adjusted. You will notice a difference in the handling. I sure did.

My dealer (who did my lift) said it was WAY off after the lift... so, I'd get it done.

The shop I got mine done at said he "only had specs for factory alignment". I told him to do it anyways, as I'm sure it'd be fine. Got it back, and it rides like a charm.
