Got it aligned after the LCA swap. Drives like a dream now. Of course, now that my front LCA bushings aren't fubar, it follows the crowing in the road like crazy. I'm pretty sure it would be possible to take a road course with only mild turns, and between banking the road and a series of carefully placed dips, get a ZJ to follow the course on its own with the cruise control set and no driver input at all. The steering on the highway is definitely better though, and between that and the new tires, no more 50mph shimmy.
