2" inch shackles with no reloaction of the front mount WILL change your caster. How much? I'm not sure. Is there enough adjustment to compensate? Again, not sure. I had a 2 inch add-a-leaf on mine for a while, I didn't have any problems with axle center, track bar, etc. But, I also used an add-a-leaf.
Personally, I wouldn't have gone that route for two reasons, 1. The caster change, and 2. You could have simply unbolted your upper shackle mount, and reversed it to the bottom of the frame.
My second lift from Top Gun Customz did EXACTLY that with a 3" dropped hanger in the front, again, no alignment issues. It also came with a track bar drop bracket and dropped pitman arm because with the add-a-leaf it was 5 inches.
IMO, get a drop hanger for the front to correct you caster. Further, I don't believe 2 inches of lift is enough to justify an adjustable track bar, provided its not simply a shackle lift. Sorry, I think that method is really bad on the front of any truck.
