1 ton steering

Ok I'm getting ready to my 1 ton utk steering upgrade. Right now I have a Synergy suspension track bar that has a pretty good drop. From the frame mounting edge to the track bar center bolt is 6 inches. Plus I have there drop pitman arm. Which is about 3/4 to 1 inch lower than stock. Well taking apart the 92 parts Cherokee I have turns out it has an Iron rock Offroad track bar and bracket. It measures from the frame mounting point to track bar mounting bolt 5 1/4 inches and uses the stock pitman arm. Which one do I use?

How much lift? Generally speaking it's better to have a flat draglink setup than high angled one.

Re: 1 ton steering

you want your drag link and track bar to match angles as closely as possible. If your track bar drop and pitman arm drop line everything up, then great. Here's a little tutorial on what you should be looking for.
