OP(original poster). I was just wondering if that kit came with a rear trackbar drop bracket. I'm guessing it didn't, so I need to know what else I need.

The double sheer front trackbar uses a bracket that replaces the factory bracket. It's easy to swap the brackets and the new one is definitely really beefy.

What he said. And no. It doesn't come with the rear drop bracket. You can purchase that for like $40. But if you look at the forums. Unless your lift is for looks only. You flex it too much and it will snap.

This is what I got. But I paid the 100$ extra for rear springs and sent them back.

I got the benchmark kit too. Then I bought a full set of control arms from them and a rear adjustable trackbar. I also upgraded to the discos. Basically, what you see in my sig lift wise is what I got from them. I wasn't messing around. Lol.

Dont get a drop bracket. Save some more money and get an adjustable TB before a drop bracket.

Thanks guys. Didn't notice how cheap adj. rear trackbars are. Only $20 more than a bracket.

Can't wait to get this lift. Any bad things to say besides the back springs being messed up?

I never said anything was wrong with the springs. They are just too tall. If I had adj. CA's and wanted to spend more $ on front spacers then I would've kept them. What does your rear measure fender to hub?

Where are you looking at a trackbar that is only $20 more than the bracket? The bracket IRO is 40$ and the trackbar IRO is 140$?

You might want to scroll back a page. Someone showed that to me and another person said to look into threads. Better off to go IRO.
