Is it necessary to relocate track bar with a 3" coil spacer BB?

Yes otherwise your axles are not centered. 2" is the largest you can go without getting adjustable ones.

Most people don't go over a 2.25" spacer anyway. If you're going 3" or higher I would recommend springs. At that height you will need more parts anyway so you're better off getting a small lift kit or a regular sized budget boost.

  1. Don't do a 3" BB... its a bad idea. Just because you can doesn't mean you should. Above 2", get a real lift
  2. You will need to have the axle recentered on any lift of that size or above and the only way to do that is via an adjustable trackbar
  3. Don't use relocation brackets on the rear trackbar. Another bad idea

its fine to run a rear track bar bracket as long as its the right one. Stay away from the ones that bolt to the rear axle, they are junk and rip off. If you do get one then get the style that bolts up to the unibody side and you will be fine, Iv run them for years with no problems.
