I suggest throwing away the dropped pitman arm and flipping the drag link to the top of the steering knuckle.

Interested on how your drag link hits the pitman arm since they are attached? Can you provide a link to some photos of what is going on?

Some build info here:

+1 for ditching the dropped pitman arm and doing a drag link flip to get the track bar and drag link parallel.
