Keep the OE Pitman Arm unless you Installed a Drop Trackbar Bracket.

Ok yea I put on a rear track bar bracket
Description below

A rear track bar relocation system is included to perfectly center the axle under your JK

That kinda correction in the front is not always needed. Install a adjustable track bar to center the axle and that's it.

The rear axle bracket will reposition the axle close to center. More for handling/roll center.

The DPA is for front steering correction. You would do that instead of flipping the drag link on top of the knuckle.
Typically not needed unless running 3-4" of lift.

Running a DPA by itself without dropping the track bar as well will make matters worse and cause bumpsteer.

Another negative to a DPA is added stress on the sector shaft and steering box.
