You should also make sure that your shackle and leaf bolts are not overtorqued. 50-60 w/ blue locktite will give you more flex and a better ride than 100, which is what the original install intends.

And to all the macho bull**** being tossed around about swaybars and trackbars. Fine, ditch the track bars, but don't completely ditch a safety device and then pretend you/your Jeep/your driving is too awesome to have it be useful.

Yes, you can do fine without them, but disconnects are easy enough and give you a larger margin of error when that texting soccer-mom swerves into your lane. You're a big shot who knows his ride by instinct, fine, but don't encourage others with less experience to follow your lead and remove safety features.

This just shows how amazingly bored I am at work today. I actually read all this crap.

Nobody said anything here that isn't debated 20 times a day.

Why can't I ever start threads that derail so brilliantly?
(I tried the thread where I added track bars to my jeep...)

Pretty counter productive post pointing fingers every which way.

Pull the retainer clips off the springs that hold the leaf packs together. I gained 6 inches of flex. ( disclaimer: Not responsible for loss or damage to your vehicle )

Thanks for the laugh. Your lack of comprehension, coupled with a seemingly innate ability to cast dispersions upon others, belies your inability to express your opinions without labeling others in a derogatory manner.
