You can modify the existing arms to clear. See the illustration below. Another alternative is to remove the existing steering arms and replace them with aftermarket dropped steering arms. They are available in 1 3/4" drop or 3 3/4" drop. The pictures below are from a Speedway Motors catalog for illustrative purpose. I believe Chassis Engineering manufactures a set of dropped steering arms that mount flatter and clear a dropped axle better than the ones I show below. Left click on the images for a larger view.
