Default xj drop pitman info

What size drop should be on for 7" lift? My tie rod end is hitting my sway bar link.

Over the knuckle or under the knuckle. I assume under if everything else is stock.

I used this one for a few years with decent results. The only real downside is it puts a lot of leverage on your steering box and frame. http://www.rustysoffroad.com/jeep-st...m-3-xj-yj.html

I think I still have it, if you're interested I could look.
