JK 2.5" Lift

I put about 50mi on it so far and the fine OKDOT-maintained roads we have around here settled out the springs about 1/2".

I think I'm going to do the RHD drag link flip; it's got just a tiny amount of bump steer.

I had to watch a video to see what you were talking about. I'm surprised the come with the tie rod below the knuckle like that. Flipping the tie rod was pretty easy on my last two steering builds. Building the correct length drag link and getting it to clear has been another story...
