Just to clarify, I am 100% certain JeSimmers makes that recommendation in jest.

Ah this is exactly the feed back I need. So I should get a track bar bracket for the frame side or the axle side? And remove the dpa?

And I'm not sure, but I don't think the tie rod is bent. It's fairly new and I don't go off road. But hey it very well could be

Hard to say what is serious and what was said in jest in this thread... assuming nothing, I'll just cut to the chance and say your tie rod is severely bent, replace it. If you have a dropped Pitman arm, definitely get rid of it... replace it with the factory OE Pitman arm. No, don't install a dropped track bar mounting bracket.

Now if I get rid of the dpa will the drag link and drag bar be a more of a different angle than they are now? I mean as it sits they seem pretty close

No. They cross now. Raising pitman arm end of draglink will change that.

from the angle of the picture,your drag link(tie rod that conects to pitman arm)looks like its running at the same angle as the track bar(which it should).the tie rod(that connects the draglink to the drivers side steering arm looks bent which would cause your wheels to be toed in.

See that's why I'm confused. To me it looks like they are at the same angle. But I can see how they cross too
