    Looking to upgrade my tie rod and drag link on my 73 cj5 d30 with a 2 inch soft ride lift from skyjacker. This cj will be mainly street driving. Just looking for a step up form oem. What do you guys recommend.

    With just a 2" lift there's no need to change the steering linkage.
    Make sure that the components are in good shape and drive it...

    I have bent the factory drag link on my '73 CJ-5. Not difficult.
