if you remove that trackbar the rear will flex like it should. just an idea. i haven't had trackbars on my jeep in 2 years, and i can't even tell much of a difference, especially with sturdier heavier duty springs like you're running.

Joe, I am honored to have your famous picture on my thread! I am very pleased with the results with the rear removed. I plan on doing the front this weekend. Is it normal to gain about an inch more lift with the bar removed? The back looks about an inch higher than the front now.

a trashcan is the best place for those tracbars. the only reason they were put in jeeps was because people forgot how to drive. cjs didn't have them at all. if you run the swaybar (which i would recommend for any street use), i would use quick disconnects. its worth the money.

In the rear? It's been said, many, many of times that the rear track bar is useless.

X2. im not so sure how well the trac bar would hold up to that caliber of tires. not to mention the axles you must be running!

in a leaf-sprung vehicle, or at least in the YJ, it is not even needed to have a trac bar. the springs themselves are all needed to keep the axle in place. if you want, repair it and put it back on. but if you want the maximize your spring articulation, then take it and the sway bar off.

Been runnin mine without the tracbar and the sway bar for a long time. But you better make sure your spring bushings are good and stiff or you will get kick in the rear usually when you shift gears goung down the road. I think when I do my axle swap I am going to make solid bushings for the rear springs.

I do not know on this one 10" lift and 39" tires. I think I would use track bars on the street for this one.

Let's see a pic of this monster.
