bent drag link

I am doing an soa to my jeep and was wondering is the draglink going to hit my leaf spring with a drop pitman arm or is there any way to bend the drag link so it wont hit the spring?

First. Don't bend the drag link. It's not safe.

If you have a drop pitman arm and do an SOA you should be fine. There is an alternative and that is the JB4x4 high steer bracket. I'm running it and it works great. They are $160 shipping included.

The JB Raised Steering Bracket

Nice....as long as you get the pinion angle correct.

Looks good.
