That's a good product that I've heard no complaints about in regards to springs or spacers.

How high do you need/want to go?

Now that I think about it I'm pretty certain it was skyjacker..

They give you a drop pitman arm.. awesome or so you'd think.. They don't give you any drop bracket for the trac bar.. aka bad bump steer

I haven't encountered the need for a drop pitman arm yet, is that more common on tj's?

I'm guessing so, most jk owners don't lift high enough to necessitate a drop pitman arm, and jks have crossover steering as opposed to inverted y, which is an improvement when it comes to the angle of the drag link

An improvement because toe in is unaffected by axle position?

Yes and the axle side tre mounts higher on the axle, reducing the angle of the drag link dangle

Trying to talk bf in giving me his lift off of his truck frog would have about 6-7 inches of lift. Not sure what it would do to steering components. I just have a body lift now

Well on cjs they didn't have trac bars if memory serves me correctly.. so it wouldn't cause bump steer by using a dropped pitman arm. Higher drag link angles can cause undesired steering feel, depending on the type of steering setup. It can be more noticeable in inverted t steering as the tie rod can roll so you'll get dead spots

So the other driver where I work keeps changing the radio in my truck to classical piano type music.. so this morning I parked his truck opposite to our normal direction of travel behind our building, and parked so close to the fence you have to get in through the passenger door lol
