With a high steer kit you donít use the drop Pittman arm. I believe I have that with the parts also.  Thereís no reason a high steer set up wonít work unless there is some strange set up with the steering box which Iím not familiar with.

I don't know how the kit Mike has works, but if it moves just the drag link, then it would be over the springs and a flat wagoneer pitman arm would likely work. That's what I use on mine now with the front stretch etc...

it might work, theres a shop  near me that has wagoneer pitmin arms that dont have the tie rod hole drilled. i could drill and put the taper on top or bottom

Parts Mike in Auburn can do the same, they can also grind the keys out of the splined side so you can rotate it where needed.

It was the caster! I finally drove it . Has 22 miles on it now. It still is a little scary but 90* better.  I did also figure out why it drives right under heavy acceleration and left when I let off. I think it's the rear anti wrap bar. It's mounted pretty far towards the driver side. I might put another one on the passenger side.

After gearing to 5.13's in the 14 bolt my YJ lifts on the driver side under acceleration for the same reasons and the bar is as close to the pumpkin as I can get it.  I'm thinking 4 link would fix that.  Now if I could just get money to do it.....

I haven't seen your Jeep in a while, sounds like you've done some upgrades

Is there any reason I can't run two wrap bars, it wasn't that pricey

I don't think there's any reason you can't run two, but why not just run one on the passenger side?  That's where they should be due to axle rotation, just on YJ's there's no room to run it on the passenger side.

A couple upgrades.... don't have a pic with the beadlocks yet.....

Looking good Tim!  Today my wife says ,why is your truck leaning. Sure enuff my front driver leaf is sagging 1-1/2". Just ordered some Rubicon express 2-1/2" springs. I was using some old yj 4" ones that we're 4"any more.
