Comanche Front Leaf Conversion - Steering?

Hey everyone, I'll be starting a project thread soon with pics of my new Comanche, but right now I am putting together a parts list.

So far:
Extended Brake Lines = $90
Rear Shackles - 1.5" XJ = $70
Front Shackles - YJ = $60
Front Leaf Springs - 4" YJ (x2) = $160
Slip Yoke Eliminator = $190
Front YJ Shackle Mounts = $60
U-Bolts + Spring perches - Dana 30 / Ford 8.8 = $80

I am thinking it should net about 8" of lift, be much less expensive than a long arm kit, and simpler to maintain.

I have no idea what to do for steering. I have been told I need high steer crossover steering. I don't see any kits like they have for Toyota's for under $500...

Is this bracket going to lift my drag link above the leaves, and let me re-use all my old steering components?

the bracket is a big help...i made my own version... but new knuckles would be better/stronger for offroad use..
