Default SAS Steering Help

Alright guys, So I'm finally replacing the steering on my SAS. (Longggg overdue). Little Background: I'm running a HPD44 out of a 79 Bronco with pretty much the stock steering, tie rod ends were shot and it was cheaper to order a new steering kit which was wayyyy stronger. Currently the steering link is mounted on the bottom of the tab on the front of the axle. I'm going to move them to the top of the tab, and i think this is going to create a clearance issue....

Here you can see the current steering set up. I'll get better pictures tomorrow.

I ordered the Ballistic Fabrication Steering kit with the Tapered GRE inserts.

I know the steering kit will work but what i don't know is if the Drop pitman arm i have now will work. And I was wondering if a flat pitman arm (say off a 2wd) would fit on the stock steering box? I don't know how big of a drop i have on there i'll have to get some pictures in the morning got too dark!
