Drag link question

A while ago I bent my tie rod into a curve. After looking at the damage and doing an inspection on other parts I realized my passenger TRE was bad on the drag link. I am planning on getting the Synergy tie rod and at the same time thought I would get their drag link also. But I am at a loss which one to get. The first link is the simple drag link they offer:
SYNERGY MANUFACTURINGÂ*::Â*SteeringÂ*::Â*Synergy Jeep JK High Steer Drag Link

but I saw this one and wondered if this would be a better choice:
SYNERGY MANUFACTURINGÂ*::Â*SteeringÂ*::Â*Synergy Jeep JK Front Steering Correction Kit

I am always looking to improve the steering feel of my jeep so I am willing to spend the extra if it will truly make a difference. I have a 2.5-3" Teraflex lift so I wasn't planning on doing a drag link flip (didn't see the need with a small lift)

Thoughts?

They are the same Drag Link. The second link adds the track bar bracket.

That drag link steering correction kit is better for over 3" lift Jeeps I just replaced my Drag-link & Tierod with synergy & didn't do the flip kit since I have a 2.5" Teraflex lift I don't think it's needed but someone on here will correct me if I'm wrong these parts made a very good change on my steering I also replaced my TB with a Teraflex HD Monster adjustable TB

Yea. you really don't need the correction under 3".
3" bumpstop is required or notching the frame which reduces up travel.
The correction kit is for bumpsteer FYI

If ever you do want go upgrade, the Synergy drag link is the same. Just flipped over the knuckle along with the raised track bar bracket.
