dropped pitman arm

I have the 3" rustys lift that came with a dropped pitman arm and i had no issues. I recently installed the re1600 track bar (I know all about needing to be properly bump stopped) and now I have some bump-steer. So since I know it changed the geometry of my steering a bit I think installing a oem pitman arm would get my steering back were it needs to be?

Also I have some sagging in the front that needs correcting I measure 7" from center of the wheel to the fender in the rear and 5 1/2" from the center to the fender in the front so to level it out I can just purchase a 1 1/2" spacer and put it in front correct? this is with a full tank of gas and my hardtop on as well.

Yes, remove the DPA. The RE1600 TB does not come with a drop bracket so you'll need to use the OE pitman arm.

that's what i figured from reading various threads. Thank you MayRoll, Dose the 1.5" spacer sound right for leveling out the sag and rake of my front end?
