steering hitting leaf springs

I have a 1980 j10. It has a shackle flip in the rear and a flip kit up front. I also have 4" springs front and back and lift shackles on the front to level it out. Total about 13" on front and 11" in back. I had trouble driving it and I noticed the steering bar coming from the pitman arm to the steering link it hitting the leaf spring on the pass side. I do have a drop pitman on it. What are people doing to fix this on high lift jeeps?

You would need high steer or crossover steering. We have a crossover steering kit that would bolt onto your rig with no modifications:

A high steer kit would work as well but usually you have to source the knuckles and such to put a kit together for yourself.
