I just got mine in today and I was looking for some feedback.
I know that you have to be really careful when drilling out the knuckle for the bushing.
Has anyone else installed this?

I installed that kit on my JK. Just follow the instructions and it will go really easy. As far as drilling the knuckle, I just used a new drill bit and a steady hand. Nothing really to worry about.

I have this and it was pretty much a snap to install. As suggested, get a new drill bit, go slow with some cutting oil and it's over in a jiffy. The only issue I've had with the drag link is that it eats up the end boot. The link itself is a stock RHD unit, which they (and AEV, etc.) just flip over. Apparently the boot rips when the suspension is flexed, which causes the metal retaining clip to cut into the rubber. I replaced the first one with the one off my stock link. It lasted two Moab trips and is now split again. I'm just going to get a parts store boot and be done with it. The boot itself is not a factory service part, Jeep wants you to replace the whole bloody drag link if the boot fails.
