Either the IRO conversion or the KOR conversion would be the best bet.

If you were to get the normal track bar instead of a conversion bar/bracket at that lift height, you would bind up when flexxing and the track bar would limit the flex

I had no problems with my JKS bar as well - better flex with the KOR conversion (with a special JKS bar) though
