6 inch to 4 inch lift

My cousins Jeep is running the 6 inch short arm Junk from Rough Country. I have 4 inch springs, The shocks came with the kit but are to short and will work with the 4 inch springs. It has a drop pitman arm and a trackbar drop, my question is can I drop to 4 inches and still use those drops temporarily until they are replaced with better parts?


If there wasn't stuff that sucked, how would we know what was cool? Beavis and Butthead

I'd say you could just grab a stock pitman arm because they are cheap, throw that on and remove the track bar drop bracket. but then again i could be wrong and at 4" with everything dropped you might still have your track bar and drag link in line.

A drop to 4 inches from 6. Should be okay. But take a good look at your axle center. you may need to adjust your track bar. 2 inches will want to push your axle out from center.

you will also need to check for contact clearance between axle,steering and frame and re-adjust the toe in-out

I would remove them both but he has to save money for a new front track bar since without the bracket it cannot bolt to the stock location. The whole supension is all outta wack, the track bar was to short anyway, for 6 inches, really wanna get it less squirly and better ride cheaply, then he can save to buy quality suspension parts, instead of peiceing together stuff.
