Drag Link

Up front, your toe also changes when you lift the Jeep. The pitman arm is further away from the knuckles than it was stock, so you will need to lengthen the drag link, and in this case, the tie rod as well. On Jeeps where the tie rod only goes from steering knuckle to steering knuckle (CJs, FSJs, JKs, etc.), you only have to adjust the drag link. On most Jeeps made in the last 20 years, however, you need to adjust both. You can do this at home with a tape measure by measuring from one tire to the other. You want the front measurement to be about 1/8-inch less than the rear measurement, giving 1/8-inch toe-in.
