JBG Leveling spring kit question, pitman arm needed ?

I got the front end leveling kit from JBG, it consists of 2 front springs and i believe it says it gives 2" to the front end, Today i am on ebay looking around and i see a dropped pitman arm by Procomp and it says that it is for 2" to 6" lift. Do i need this ? i never thought of a dropped pitman arm-

If only 2" i would say no. I havent heard of anyone using one for leveling coils before. And most drop pitman arms are for 4-6". Might be a typo by whom ever posted it on ebay.

It's not custom if you bought it from a catalog!

No you don't need it. I had the Rough country 2.5" kit and it came with rear leafs so the alignment stayed nice as well as the tires. You can even keep the stock arm with a 4" kit if you do the tie-rod flip to the top of the knuckles. I did it the flip when I had the 2.5" lift too! -Kevin-

i know people with 6" lift and stock pitman. it isnt the best but 2" is very minimal. 2 isnt even really enough to consider the TRE flip. once you go to 4 or more then its a good time to think about it

"2 isn't enough to consider the TRE flip" Are you saying don"t consider doing a tre flip with only having a 2" lift ?

It's fine, you're overthinking it.

Just had this discousion else where. With my 4+ lift and a trf the steering sits level from one side to the other. With any less of a lift the steering would be angled upwards. This could cause some adverse steering effects. Like major bumps steer. Heres a photo of my steering with a stock pitman and trf and 4.75" lift.
