Drag link bar 1995 jeep yj replacement

Have a jeep where the drag link bar snapped...when trying to replace they are all straight bars but the one i have has 2 bends in it...Any idea if that is a factory replacement or something someone did thereself?its sitting on a rough country suspension at least 6 inches possible more.

Yea um, wow.
That is commonly referred to as a z bar.
Not the best way to correct your steering.
Something like this is a much better option.

You need to properly address the steering, that is absolutely not the way to have it. What's going on with the tie rod and the two clamp block things on there?

JB quit making the product, closed the business I believe. I'm pretty sure the MORE unit is the only one available from retailers today. I'd jump on Paul's offer. Nothing wrong with the JB at all. Mine has been flawlessly steering my Jeep since 2006.

BTF makes a bracket similar to the MORE bracket.... https://www.bluetorchfab.com/collect...-30-44-knuckle Shows currently out of stock though.

As far as I know JB closed up shop, which is too bad because it was the only bracket that let you retain a stock type tie rod end.

paulhead's offer is the best deal going for sure, the OP better jump on that.
