Track bar question on 05 F250

i have a 4" lift, i'm going to be making it a 6" by adding coil spacers, shocks, and rear springs, also a new pitman arm. my current 4" lift uses a longer replacement track bar, is it possible to just buy a 2" drop track bar bracket to use with the aftermarket extended track bar? or should i just buy an ajdustable track bar?

skyjacker sells a 2" track bar bracket for $217, but then icon has the adj track bar from 2.5"-9" for only $305.

need some input, thanks! the reason i am considering just the drop bracket is because that bushing on the pass side of the TB was a pain in the butt the first go round and i'd like to avoid messing with it.

either way will work, get the additional drop or the adjustable track bar, I agree with you, getting the drop bracket may be easier, and also keeps the angles better.

ok so my aftermarket track bar should fit a 2" drop bracket? i think that's what i'm going to do, easier and cheaper.

what about brake line extensions? will i need them, if so where can i buy em?
