Question BellTech Front Drop and Alignment.

Sup guy's! I just got my truck dropped on the BellTech front struts down to 3 Inches. Now I know Belltech Intructions say to enlarge the Lower control arm mounting points so we can get the front Alignment into spec. got this done. But took it to the shop does the cars for my work place. they were scared to align it the way it is with the Bigger slotted Mounting holes. They said it will move around without a add-on kit for Caster/Camber. Which comes with a plate and bolt. guess they said to hold it in place so the bolts don't move and the alignment goes out of whack! The Belltech install sheet does not suggest this or come with these add-on parts. anyone did these Bigger slotted holes and have it move after? I say screw it! Already drove 100miles on my drop...and all seems fine. U think it will be fine they way BellTech install book says. LMK Please. So I can get my Alignment corrected without adding these extra parts they say I need!
