Front knocking.

New to the forum so sorry for bringing up issues that may of been solved in old threads. I recently lifted my wk by doing a RC BB lift that I bought new and running 255/75/17s my buddy gave me off his jk. Topped it off with a Rola rack for xmas and the truck looks TITS. But I ran into a few issues that I would like to shed some light on and try to get some answers.

First off, I am having a knocking coming from my front end and after looking at everything I have come to the conclusion that my steering rack is shot. Has anyone with the knock tried changing out the entire rack and tierods? what were the results?

My 2nd question is concerning sway bar disco links. I remember seeing that they cant be run because of rubbing on steering knuckles?? But if the links are removed completely and the sway bar is hung up is there an issue?

Looking forward to everyone's input and amped to be part of this jeep community.
