The currie is called correct link bc it has a bend in the drag link right before the pitman arm but if you dont have not enough lift the bend is to much and the bolt does not line up. Atleast this is what i was told from currie.

I found this on a different site, I had never heard of any minimal lift to be able to use it

" According to Currie this kit is a stock replacement good for up to 4" lift. My build thread has some pictures of this system layed out next to the stock V8 system. Worked great for me at 3 1/2" lift and is still working great at 5 1/2"."

This is off Currie's site

Description: The Currie Currectlync® heavy duty tie rod and drag link system for TJ, LJ, XJ, and MJ vehicles features, a 1 ¼" diameter forged alloy drag link, and 1 ¼" solid alloy steel tie rod bar that is bored and threaded on the ends. All 7/8" thread tie rod ends with boots are included as well as the Currie heavy duty steering stabilizer bracket. This unit is a direct replacement for the stock parts. No modifications or machining to any part of the vehicle is necessary. This unit is rated at 200% stronger than the stock components. NOTE: This unit is designed to be used on vehicles with 4" of lift. It can be used on vehicles with less lift, but the vehicle must have a minimum of a 2" bump stop (over stock). Also, on vehicles with no lift, 2 of the tie rod ends may need be trimmed to achieve proper adjustment.

Nothing fancy, I installed a 3rd brake light in my spare with a flash relay. Cool and cheap!!
I'll tint it in the summer to match the other brake lights

I have about a 3" lift and mine works great.

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.
Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.
