I have decide to go for the skyjacker 2-1/2" budget flex as it has adjustable control arms included and is not a bad price

what bushes come with the skyjacker control arms?
The control arms that came with my kit weren't adjustable but the nolathane bushes flogged out within 6 months and led to DW for me

like where they sit in the guards. Been told that they put extra stress on bearings ect? is this true and why? i would have thought the wider the tire track the more presure.

If you just have the springs changed must you do a wheel alignment?

How much lift are you going for? At 2 inces I would not be worried. The only adjustable component is the tow in/out and with a 2 inch lift it should not change. More than that then you will need to look into panhard length to get you wheels back to even left to right, maybe longer (adjustable) lower control arms to bring the caster back into spec.
