rough country track arm drop bracket

Will the track arm drop bracket meant for 4-6 inches of lift from rough country work with only 3 inches of lift? I currently have one with my 6 inch long arm lift but i'm getting a zone 4.25 lift so will i need a new track bar or drop bracket or will this one work? The only thing i can see is maybe there will not be enough adjustment to center the axle but it seems like i have plenty of adjustment left on the track bar

thats ~2.5" of lift, at ride height, with a drop track bar bracket.
Is the problem it rubbing the sway bar mounts? or does it have clearance with the tie rod

Oh wow, I've been running mine for almost 8 months, I didn't even think to check on that before, i guess I've gotten lucky because I haven't had any damage to my tie rod yet and I go wheeling almost every chance I can, so what would your suggest as a replacement for the drop bracket

Metalcloak would be a good choice for your 3" lift.
