1998 jeep cherokee lifted steering problems

i just lifted my jeep this past weekend and i was told by someone that there was a problem with the steering and i needed to buy these parts...

this seems a bit extreme for what i am looking for. i do not plan on off roading my jeep hard core i will go off road but nothing to crazy. i was also told to out on a pitman arm and that will fix whatever the problem is. i am not sure what the problem really is. but i have a 4.5 inch rough country lift on my 1998 jeep cherokee and if anyone has any advice to this please let me know. i am not sure the difference with these parts i do not know steering parts very well at all.

At 4.5" of lift, you do need an adjustable track bar.

You do not need to do anything to the steering.

Iron Rock makes very good parts. I have the IRO double shear track bar on my 2000 with 5.5" of lift. I recommend them often.
