used a RHD draglink, over the knuckle, as opposed to shortening my trackbar and mounting it over the axle tube centerline I opted to get a shallower pitman arm(from a yj or cj??, can't remember) to match the trackbar angle, no bumpsteer at all

One thing about using a stock steering setup though is the stressed passenger TRE. The angle is now so steep at that TRE that it's probably at it's limit.

My rig is sitting at about 7" of lift and I used the "standard" Chevy 3/4 ton TRE conversion with 1.5" .250 wall DOM with a wheel to wheel tie rod:

I actually put a small bend in the draglink on the psngr side to help with the angles, haven't worn the ends yet although it is a bit more severe than I'd like.
