The Currie setup specifies not to use a drop I believe

The Currie steering kit doesn’t affect that decision, it works with either. But use a dropped Pitman arm only if you're also installing an aftermarket dropped trackbar mount for the driver's side.. which is seldom a good idea.

what is a good adjustable front track bar to use with the currie set up, without using a drop track bar mount ?

Might as well stick with Currie if your pockets aren't empty yet..
