SD60/14b swap ABS chicken or the egg

Working on 08 JKUS with SD60/14b swap. Abs is going nuts and I haven't tried to run it down yet. Preforms fantastic off-road with the ABS kill switch on. I do have the speedo almost perfect. The alignment is not great, as good as I can do alone with a tape. Going to run down the ABS issues with a friends Snap-on scanner at his business. I don't want to waste their time.
Alignment shop is over a week out. Is it a waste to try to make abs happy if the alignment is off, specifically the steering wheel being centered? I assume the ABS operates somewhat off of wheel position and this could cause ABS issues.

SO, spend the time to mess with ABS pre-alignment or wait till after alignment?

I had the wheel off centered enough to kick on the traction control light but it never messed with the ABS. 08 as well.

Ya, I don't this the ABS itself cares about steering wheel position. But I believe the ABS unit is what would apply the brakes when stability control/traction control activates to try an kill you.
