Steering Arm vs. Drag Link ???

In the never ending quest for better/safer performance, I want to fix my steering so I can make full right turns. Does anybody have any preference and/or recommendations as to whether I should get a steering arm ($60 +/-) or a drag link ($120+/-)???

Thanks

Get a raised steering arm. it doesn't put more stress on anything like a drop pitman arm and doesn't cost what an offset draglink does. I got a raised steering arm and it wasn't quite high enough but still worked. They make them in different lengths too I've learned. The one I got is identical in length to stock but raised precisely 4". No, I don't know what brand it is. I bought it used like everything else on my lift besides my rear shocks.

Thanks, I was thinking the steering arm would be a better choice.
