Clutch scared of heights ?

I've got a 85 cj7 that i just put a 1" body lift on and now the clutch won't
work smoothly. Is it because the bell crank is now on a slight angle ? How do
I fix it ? can i get a longer clutch rod ? If so where ? Thanks for any help.

It is likely due to your bell crank being at a angle, some run in to this problem with a 1" body lift. The fix is to fab up a way to lower the body mount down a 1 to make it horizontal again.
