97 jeep grand cherokee ZJ LIFT HELP!!!!!

I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited ZJ with the 5.2L. I just bought the vehicle and am wanting to put a lift on it. It is a daily driver mainly highway but I go to the country quite a bit. I want around a 4" lift and to run 32's, I have been reading about trabsfer case drops and steering geometry etc. Etc. Im just wondering if I need to be concerned with pinion angles and the geometry stuff and the well known "death wobble" if its mainly going to be highway use. And if I did get the lift what would I need to also get or do so that I dont trash the thing just by lifting it. Help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

In my opinion if it's a DD then I would do a budget boost and maybe a little trimming (my stock 5.2 had 31's on it when I bought it and no rubbing). I think if you go this route you will be ok on your questions.
