I'm in the same boat as Rob. I just put a 2.5" add a leaf and was expecting to have to do a track bar also and adjust the steering, but it seems to be fine. Although I haven't had a friend drive it yet while I follow to see if it is dog tracking. If your really concerned I think the adjustable track bar is the superior way to go.

If you drop the track bar you have to drop the pitman arm too. Get an adjustable track bar.
