relocate steering box or move axle

here's my dilemma..... puttin a 60 front axle in my YJ, I have ballistic hi-steer arms, and a waggy pitman arm reamed for 1 ton TRE's.... installed the tie rod, when attempting to install the drag link, I can't because it hits the tie rod.... (end of pitman arm is right above the tie rod)

option 1: find a shorter pitman arm (astro pitman arm I think) and buy a steering box relocation bracket..... maybe gain 2" with both of these..... only issue I see is possibly hurting turning with a shorter arm.....

option 2: slide front axle forward and install an astro box and be done with it..... how far does the front axle need to move forward to utilize an astro steering box??

what are thoughts on these???

any pictures of astro boxes in jeeps?
