If its made specificly for the lift you get then it will work fine. Did you get Castor shims..they don't come with the Bilstein kit std?

Utilizing a drop track bar bracket without a matching drop pitman arm will introduce bump steer into the system. Some lesser engineered systems include a drop bracket to address axle centering but this is less than ideal.

As for the bumpstops, your sig lists a Bilstein leveling kit, is that what you are running?
