Alignment and t-case drop after rc lift?

Just completed my 2.5 inch RC LIft Kit last night. I am running 31's.

During the installitation I had a few questions that I posted on Jeep Forum and the responces that the forum members provided really helped a lot.

Thank you for your help. It really looks cool.
It took a little longer than I thought. however it saved me 250.00 to 300.00
and I did it with the help of my brother. Now I owe him a steak dinner after church today.

2 last questions though.

Do I really need to have it aligned ?
Should I put the spacers between the skid plate ?

Have a great day.

You NEED to have it aligned or DIY.If you don't have vibes at any speeds,you don't need the spacers.If you have slight vibes,do a MML or just drop the skid with a few washers.

get it aligned sooner than later.
the 1.25" spacer that come with the kit are unnecessary. go for a test drive. if you feel vibes, put some washers between your skid and the frame.
