SuperLift Kit Alignment

I ordered the SL Kit and new Moog Ball Joints and Arms.
Kit won't be here for a while but I need to get things lined up ahead of time.

When installing this kit I have heard of alignment problems, not many but some.

Is it best to order MOOG Alignment Bolts,Bushings, Cams ahead of time ?
If so do you need one kit for each side ?

I was thinking it is better to wait and see how things turn out.

How many of you that have installed the SL Kit have had an alignment problem that required them to order alignment add-ons ?

Thanks ahead of time...

Thanks for that Shadow, I will attempt the install without the alignment stuff...

For anyone interested here are some numbers and other questions :

Just got off the E-Mails with Auto Rock and it was suggested to use the following parts:

K8708T LH-UCA w/oversized BJ - $84 on Amazon.com - $92 Rock Auto.
K8710T RF-UCA w/oversized BJ - $87 on Amazon.com - $92 Rock Auto.
K8695T LBJ, x2, not oversized - $30 - on Amazon - $32 Rock Auto.

I hear there is a 5% discount at Rock Auto with the "CODE", not sure, but the prices gets closer.

Amazon is free shipping, Rock Auto is $9, widens the gap a little.

Your call.

There are MOOG Alignment pieces but not sure whether to buy before the kit is installed or wait.

The MOOG Arms and Oversized BJs sound a little HD for the Ranger, again not sure.
There is an over sized LBJ but it is not called out for my Ranger Edge, maybe the FX4 and XLT ?

Are the LCAs off of an FX4 or XLT different, maybe just larger BJs ?
Will the LCA from the FX4 or XLT trucks fit the Ranger Edge and other Rangers with the smaller diameter BJ ?

Too many questions... need answers before the kit goes in.

Any input... ?
