Spring VS Draglink

I have a 78 CJ7 with a 4" Superlift and a drop pitman arm. The Draglink hits the spring on the passenger side when the Jeep flexes enough to lift the Left rear tire. Can this be normal??

I've seen it happen. Think about doing a cossover steering set-up.

Re: Spring VS Draglink

Actually I misspoke, (mistyped) the draglink is in contact with the spring pretty much all the time. The Jeep will still flex enough to lift the left rear tire. It just seems that the draglink is way closer than it oughta be and I wondered if perhaps my 4" drop pitman arm was actually a 6" drop.

Measure the drop of the pitman arm and find out.
