Yj trac bar removal ?

On the front trac bar is the nut on the torx bolt welded or tanged to the frame? Or is it just a regular type nut

Not welded. But it is a tight fit

If it's any consolation, I just lifted my 95 and it was the only bolt I didn't have to cut off. Soak it down with penetrating oil before you attack it.

Use an angle grinder with cut-off wheel. You know you want to use a new bolt if you decide to ever put it back.

Only if you can't get the bolt out with a couple applications of PB blaster and a breaker bar. You want to be able to list it all on craigslist, just in case someone actually wants track bars (can't imagine why)

This is where a good set of impact rated Torx bits and a 1/2" impact really comes in handy.

Not sure if this will help, but skip to the one minute mark for the start of the underneath video

The front was easier than the rear.

This is where trackbars and swaybars belong.


Swaybar/ Trac bar (noun) A Government mandated sissy bar to keep crybabies who would never own a utilitarian vehicle happy

It is funny you say sway bars also. I have been running about 5 years without track bars. Best upgrade I did to the Jeep, price was right. The sway bar I pulled it about 2 years ago I got tired of fussing with the RE quick disconnects.
I am bored and dragged my sway bar out of the Jeep old parts pile and I am currently waiting for the paint to dry so I can reinstall it.

Throw the track bars away, I would advise hanging onto the sway bar you never know if you may want to run it again.

Only swaybar I would run is a antirock

I am not running it off road that is what the discos are for. I do have 3 other people in my house that drive my Jeep and my daughter who is 18 asked me to help make the Jeep a little more civilized when she does drive it.

She wins I am putting it back on for her.
