Just a thought... While adding the shocks and sway bar links now, why don't you also add spring spacers to get the height right. Then later on replace the spacers with 4-1/2" springs?

Control arms - yes. Drop pitman arm - no. The ZJ pitman arm is already dropped.

Check out the current thread in which the writer is asking about Dodge Ram springs. There is a good discussion going on about springs.
