They cant tell you to put in a trackbar if there's nowhere to put it.

Yea, someone suggested changing mechanics......my mechanic/inspector also insisted I have the hoop bumpers on the rear for the inspection since that was the specification for YJs that year. That's being too stringent!

Rear Trac Bar bracket installation

I've swapped rear axles. The new one is from a TJ, so I had to swap out the shock hangers and spring perches. I'm getting ready to install the rear trac bar hanger. The hanger has a slotted bolt hole. Should I install it with the bolt in the middle of the slot?

Don't listen to these guys. Keep the trac bar. Don't throw it away.










Throw it on your junk metal pile and use it for another project.

Don't put it on your jeep, but save it if your state has any kind of safety inspection, in case you get some eager beaber who flunks you because it is missing. Then after the inspection, take it back off.

I can't imagine that Jeep put a trac bar on the vehicle for no reason. What is it supposed to do? I have a 2" zone lift kit. Does that make any difference?

Track bars job is to center the axles with a leaf sprung vehicle it does absolutely nothing other then make them twitchy and ride rough leaf springs center the axles. It was just another government mandated useless part CJ's never had them

Seriously, the Jeep will ride, handle and flex better without the trac bars. Leave them off.

If you like go-kart handling, ultra tight suspension with no flex, by all means install the track bars.

But, your YJ will be just fine without the rear track bar. I doubt you'll notice any significant negative effects without it, and you'll more likely be impressed on how much smoother the rear end rides since it can now flex properly.

Just before the YJ came out there was a lot of bad press about jeeps (cjs) rolling. This was before modern SUVs. So jeep widened the track and added as much stuff they could to sell the media and future buyers on the stability of the jeep.
