The stock drag link bends easily, I used to bend my just slightly every wheeling trip. A stronger drag link is a good idea, and any high steer setup is going to reward you on the highway too.
I've had to recenter my steering wheel quite often after wheeling and I've suspected the factory drag bar was the culprit. As I see it I have two choices as I'm not a fan of the Teraflex unit as it requires the use of a dropped pitman arm and I don't like the additional forces it places on the steering box and shaft.
That leaves Rock Krawler and Poly. The RK leaves the steering geometry as it is and cost 130 plus 120 in in ball joints. The Poly is 300 (so cost really isn't an issue), changes the steering geometry and reinforces the factory track bar bracket. I just went out and ran string between the trackbar and drag link pivot points and they are so close to parallel that I can't detect a differnce. I haven't had any issues at all with bump steer and the rig handles well on the road. Raising the roll center would be a plus with the Poly unit. It might come down to which unit is easier to adjust although hopefully it will need to be adjusted less often. Do you have any thoughts on the Poly vs the RK drag links? They are both good companies making a quality product so I have no problems with either one.
