Alignment Specs For TJ With 4 inch Lift

Anyone have a lifted TJ that has similar specs? I'm going to replace my steering box soon and recently did the above mentioned rough country lift and would like some feedback on alignment specs you have used. I don't have adjustable control arms. I know the factory specs aren't going to do me a whole lot of good.

All you are going to be able to set is toe-in. Set it in 1/8".

I did the alignment a while back now the steering seems really sloppy. Time for ball joints??

Can't automatically assume that. Could be a lot of things. Don't just throw parts at it. Properly diagnose.

I'm upgrading to a heavy duty currie steering system soon so hopefully this will help a bit too.
