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?

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.
