When I lifted my Ford they did a drop pitman arm, why don't they do it on JK's?
I see most people mention doing drag link flip

It rotates the drag link above. Less things to get hit.

They do drop pitman arms on the jk as well BUT it's better to do the drag link flip as well as a raised trackbar mount because it keeps them parallel. Just dropping the pitman arm doesn't help steering geometry

That and it also causes added stress to the steering gear box......

what others have said and most drop pitman arms for the Jeep don't fit as well as they should and they allow slop which= more issues

The factory pitman arm has much tighter tolerances then most aftermarket ones. So the like to slip. One of my next mods is a drag link flip for sure. Lucky I kept the factory pitman arm so I can put it back on.
