Here ya go Rep'T, the info. goes on and on, not sure if this is the newest info on New Jersey law, but specifically it talks about the inspection. I think this modification would fly, but I see your concern. Basically it looks to me like these inspection stations (wonder if they are run by private "for profit" companies)are god in NJ. The basic premise is off the shelf type lifts are OK, as long as total lift heights/tire sizes are adhered to. Anything custom they don't like. So, even though this would be a good mod to get your steering angles back more to stock, they probably won't like it "just because it's custom"
If you don't run bumpers, MUDDY, don't go visit RepT!
Springovers are not legal, no matter what.
Actually, probably half of us on this board couldn't go visit Rep'T for one reason or another due to NJ's vehicle laws. I would bet that if they don't like spring overs, they won't like SAS!!! Not because there is something wrong with it. It's just "custom" and they have no control over what you are doing.

New Jersey Laws
The following is information obtained from the New Jersey Department of Motor Vehicles which was submitted by loyal viewers of CustomTruckShowcase.com. Updated on 06.29.00.
Law guidelines and regulations are as follows:
An examination of your vehicle indicates that it has been raised more than 4 inches beyond its manufactured height. Under the provisions of N.J.A.C. 13:20-37.3, such a vehicle must undergo a geometric stability test.
These tests are being conducted by appointment only at these specialty inspection locations:
Asbury Park Specialty Site
1010 Comstock Street
Asbury Park, NJ 07712
Morristown Specialty Site
101 Ridgedale Avenue
Morristown, NJ 07960
Winslow Specialty Site
250 Spring Garden Road
Ancora, NJ 08037
A comprehensive examination of the steering and suspension will be conducted. There is no charge for this inspection. Please call the location of your choice as soon as possible, since the test must be completed prior to the expiratio date of your inspection sticker.
Conditions for the motor vehicles with elevated chassis heights are:
(1) Steering gear ratios and steering wheel left stop to right stop turns must be within 1/2 turn of the original manufacturers specifications.
There were MANY more rules but this was all concerning steering.
