Maybe it's that you have adjustable control arms that lenthen your wheelbase making it look shorter.

Looks great Charlie!
Did you replace your tie rod yet? Or are you just getting end links? MOOG!

If you are replacing the entire tir rod I'd suggest you get a heavy duty one because they are the weak point on the steering geometry when lifted. I'm sure you've seen the pics where the tires are pointed in like the feet on a shy schoolgirl!

Oh and I had trouble discoing my JKS Discos on the passenger side because of the tight anlge of the drag link and tie rod. It cleared up when I went taller and dropped the pitman arm.
