I don't care about your fancy disconnects or your telescoping track bars. If I wanted to discuss that I would make a thread about telescoping track bars and sway bar disconnects.

I put a lot of time into publishing this write up. Don't come into my thread and try and tell me that I'm stupid or that I do anything without consideration.
THAT'S what I like to call, a Head Shot response!!

I took my sway bar off the other day, and I would suggest just using a wrench before taking a grinder to the bolts. My bolts and nuts came loose with not too much drama. This way, if you don't like the ride, you can just put it back together without having to hunt down new hardware that you just destroyed.

If you can get your bolts out without cutting them I definitely suggest that as a first option


By the way, who put this in general?

Yj front track bar bolt size help

My 94 yj has a nice turn to the right every once in awhile. When I added my lift I had to replace the trackbar due to the bolt being pretty much plastic welded to the bushing. I replaced the whole trackbar but icouldnt get my hands on the right size bolt. Since then I forgot where I wrote down the correct bolt sizes for the front track bar. I am pretty sure that it was a 12mm fine thread. Can anyone confirm the size and give me the right length I would greatly appreciate it. I've been looking all over this site and the Internet and can't find a damn thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Thats fine for trail riding however my jeep gets alot of use in the winter when the weather is questionable and id rather not have to jerk the wheel every so often to keep the thing straight.

In the case of ditching the track bars, if anyone ditches theirs can they measure the bolts for me first before they throw everything away.

Anybody have any sizes and not suggestions to ditch it?

probably not. everyone ditches it because it works in a different plane then the leaf springs so they fight each other and cause a very rough ride.

stm144 - Depending on other projects and whether or not mine will come off easily, I'll probably be removing my track bars this weekend. If I like the ride better, I'll send you my bolts if you cover shipping.
Or you can go to a pick-a-part/pick'n'pull and get them.

Track bars are worthless on a leaf sprung vehicle, period. What you should keep with a stock height suspension is the sway bar. This is becuase the springs are softer and worn out from years of use, you'll have more body roll than with new, stiffer lift springs.

If you're having driveability issues, there is something else wrong besides the track bar, because CJ's don't even have track bars, and 95% of us YJ's on here don't either.

Track bars aren't going to cause your vehicle to drift off. You have other problems. I'd start by checking your tie rod ends.
