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

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.
