My angle of the dandel, high steer?

So this is off my 76 CJ, dana 30 with drum brakes.
I would like to do something different to get my angels right, and would like to add disk brakes to the front.
It's a street jeep with some sand,snow,light trail use. Don't really want to dump the 30 as it has a locker and chromoly shafts.
What's a good plan ? Should I just do a drop pitman and call it a day? Or is there a bolt on high steer kit?

That is scary!

Install a 4" drop pittman arm, install a new, strait, drag link and call it a day.

I noticed the WA plates. Old pics or are you up this way?

Mine sits nice and flat. SOA with a 4" arm.

I live in the Everett Wa. Area, but work in Martinez, CA.

The jeep is with me in CA!
Long story short, jeep was for sale in CA, could not pass smog and had back fees, I got a good deal on it and registered it in WA, where we only test 20 years back. So this jeep is now smog exempt. Wish I was at home with a regular garage to work on this beast, but the work is down here so that's where I am !

So that's where a sway bar would go....

Nope. All the steering is hooked up in the stock locations. The sway bar attaches at a different point. In the top pic, you can see the sway bar hooked to the spring plate. I have a set of disconnects I built on mine.

Mine came with a sway bar in the back seat, think I might put it back on, it should improve mall cruzing
