Re-alignment necessary if i swap it out keeping everything aligned and in place? I'm sure the drag link will need to be shortened up but everything else should be fine correct?
ICON 4.5" Lift + 2" Spring spacer under pad.
Extended the Drop links, extended the shocks,
A drop pitman arms purpose is to lower the steering angles to prevent bump steer and so is a drop track bar bracket. Your drag link when it gets kinked on the tierod ends cause major bump steer when you hit a bump and can cause a death wobble. You always need to have the draglink and trackbar at the same angle.
My draglink is custom with 1 3/4 heim joints and the ball joint on the axle is flipped so my angles can be perfectly the same. No bump steer at all. You must run a drop track bar bracket and pitman arm on a 6in lift.
