how important are front and rear adjustable track bars?

So I got a new 4" lift that should be here tomorrow. I wont have the time for the next 2 weeks or so to put it on so I got to wondering about adjustable track bars front and rear. How important are they on a 4" lift? Are they a "Must have"? I know that they center the axles. but do I need to buy adjustable ones to get the jeep rolling decently?

If you want your axles centered under your Jeep, then yes, they are pretty much a must have

You can re-drill the stock track bar bolt holes.A front adjustable and rear relocation bracket is best.

i have a 2.5" lift and put adjustables on front and rear. go with Currie. Also with a 4" lift, you'll want a Slip Yoke Eliminator, adjustable upper control arms and a rear track bar relocation bracket since you'll need to rotate the axle to point the pinion toward the new fixed yoke on the t-case.

For the front end, it is suggested to get an adjustable track bar. For the rear end, a location bracket would work pretty well for a 4" lift.
