Keep a drop pitman arm on hand just in case. You can grab one off a stock cherokee from a junkyard to save some cash.

You may or may not need a dropped pitman arm.

I just took my YJ on its maiden voyage into town today after "piecing" my lift together with the exact same springs.

I will probably end up putting my DPA on because I seem to have developed some twitchy steering and our roads here are awful anyway.

Got the lift done, went really quickly after months of soaking in wd40. Check it out in my build thread
