Track Bars? Do I need one?

Long story short I am back in the market for a lift kit (had ordered, yada yada yada). Now that I am looking for them again I am seeing more of a difference in kits.

Some come with new, fixed length track bars, some come with a new bracket, some an adjustable bar, and some none at all. Which do I need to be looking for. I would think if you lift, especially anything over 2.5", you would need a new one, but maybe I am missing something.

Clue me in people.

The track bar or relocation bracket will bring the front and rear wheels back to being parallel after a lift. If you lift over like 2" I would get the track bar. The relocation bracket is a cheaper fix but doesnt have the adjustability and the axle brackets have been known the break off with that setup.
