Your alignment should be as close to factory settings as you can get. That'll be hard on short arms though. Do you have adjustable upper and lower control arms?

I hope you have changed out your factory track bar with an adjustable track bar. With the 4" lift is is needed.
Do not buy the Rough Country Track Bar unless you plan to change it out with in 3 or 4 months. I bought it at first and within 3 months it was rattling at the end joint. It is to light and even flexes allowing movement when new.
Very light duty or no off roading or pot holes in your area? you may be ok, but i recommend getting IRO track bar and Polly bushings.

Thats funny, Ive had two RC track bars on two different WJs and have never had a problem. And I kind of beat the **** out of my Jeeps.

There is nothing you can do to your alignment then, other than toe and center your steering wheel.
