snwchris NO, Droped Pitman Arm... but make sure you have the Adj. Front Trackbar, will help with keeping the axle centered.

AzTJ Like the other guys said, no dropped pitman arm is needed.

I'm running RE 3.5 springs and their smaller RE1600 trackbar and the steering is fine.

X2. In fact, you want to make sure not to install a dropped Pitman arm unless you also install a dropped upper trackbar mounting bracket like would be used with RE's heavy-duty RE1610 trackbar. Installing a dropped Pitman arm without a corresponding dropped upper trackbar mount will just cause bump steer.

Lifted Jeep, Steering Fix

Hey guys. I've been doing a ton of research before actually doing any modifications, and I have everything pretty well worked out, but I'm running into one little issue.
If I put a RE 3.5 lift on, along with a JKS 1.25 body lift, what should I do with the steering? Will a drop pitman arm do the trick? Or will it take more than that? Because I've seen bigger kits that supply you with two large arms that claim to correct the geometry of your steering for lifted jeeps. Does anyone know what I'm talking about here? Any suggestions on what it'll take to get the steering right?
