Bump steer,IRO trackbar question

Fitted the trackbar & adjusted the length so the axle is centered under the body,I now have bump steer which pulls to the left then centeres again straight away.I removed the trackbar drop bracket which came with the lift but have left in place the drop pitman arm,so my question is the bump steer caused by the bars not being parallel when the suspension compresses or can it be sorted by lengthening or shortening the track bar?
All the front end parts are new( had d/w) thanks.

yep. You need either both the drop bracket and pitman, or neither.

You don't need either bracket or arm with the adjustable TB. Take both off and just use the TB.
