Currie Currectlync on ZJ

I am looking into getting a currie steering set up for my zj. I currently have a rugged ridge cross-over steering setup, with poly spacers in the tres to prevent tie rod roll. I dont mind the set up but it is eatting up the tie rod end at the pitman arm because of the angle, requiring me to get a drop pitman arm to lessen the angle(dont really want to do). My question is since the currie is set up like the stock setup but obviously beefier, there should be no problem with that running at the 4.5in lift I am at now, correct?
Thanks in advance.

I was thinking about that but I am unaware if Pennsylvania has an inspection issue with the heims. I will have to check and see.

I personally know of two guys running the Currie system on ZJs with 6"+ of lift without problems. Seems like a nice piece from what I hear.

ive got the curry set up sitting in my garage right now, well its actually hybrid. IRO tie rod and Currie drag link, just got the drag link the other day, if your looking for a better set up for less do it the way i did.

Currie complete set up: $400
IRO/Currie complete set up: $350

not a huge savings but its a better set up because the tie rod ends are smaller. smaller tie rods sound bad but smaller tie rod ends means thicker tie rod neck, the only place ive ever seen the currie set up break is at the tierods, the neck broke.

Well guys thanks for the info. The currie system I can get is about $350 shipped. I think I am going to give that route a try since my zj is a dual duty daily driver and weekend warrior. I am going to send back the pitman arm I ordered from iro($159) and sell off my steering I have now and it should supplement most of this purchase.
Thanks again for all of the info, I knew I could count on you guys.
