Such thing as extended tie rod adjustment sleeve?

I recently in a dana 60 from an 03 f250 in place of the 50 on my early 99. When i orginally did the 4.5" icon lift on the truck the steering wheel went completely upside down. After the allignment it was perfect until now. I am being told that I need some sort of aftermarket sleeve with a couple inches added length, Does something like this exist and is it the solution to my problems? I have the drop pitman arm but not an adjustable trac bar.

Early 99 CC SB, Dana 60, 4.10's, DP Tuner, 4" MBRP, AFE Stage II, 4.5 Icon Hanger Lift, 20x9 Moto Metal 957, 325/60/20 BFG AT

Sounds to me like not having an adjustable track bar is the problem in the first place.

Yes you can get a longer sleave but if you have a Icon kit you don't need a adj track bar or the sleave for the drag link.....just a different alinement shop.
