This new upgrade kit features both a new drag link flip system and the popular JKS6200 control arm relocation bracket system all in one kit. This upgrade kit is designed to work with JK lift systems of 2.5-5" of lift.The drag link flip system is actually comprised of 2 main components.
First, the new drag link directly replaces the factory link and uses the factory adjusting collar and tie rod end at the pitman arm. This installation requires drill out the steering arm tapered hole in the passenger's side knuckle and installing a precision machined tapered insert. The insert has a knurled outer surface and has a slight interference fit making it extremely strong and eliminates any possibility of play or loosen. The insert can also be reused in the opposite position if the Jeep ever needed to be returned to the original steering setup.
The drag link flip flattens out the steering angles when combined with the lift heights mentioned and provides better, more solid steering feel over the factory setup. To properly compliment the new steering angles provided by the drag link flip, a front track bar bracket is supplied that mounts to the factory track bar axle mount. This new bracket not only adapts the factory mount for proper track bar angles, it also strengthens the factory setup by tying into the axle via a u-bolt setup integrated into the design. The new track bar location mimics the drag link angle perfectly and eliminates bump steer.
In order to accommodate these 2 new components, 3" tall front aluminum bump stop extensions are included to provide the proper clearance at full bump.
The combination of these brackets with the high steering components create an amazing handling package.
