96 ZJ Pitman Arm question

I have a 96 ZJ L6 4.0 and i just put the lift on the other day. Now I have a power steering leak. I plan on replacing the gear box and getting the box brace from KOR as well as an adjustable track bar tie rods and drag link. So i came to the pitman arm. Do I need a drop pitman arm on a 3.5" lift? Ive read several places that you need one for over 4" but that was all different jeeps, not a ZJ. What do you guys say about trying to hunt for a drop pitman arm or can i keep the regular size with no problems?
