Adustable Track Bar Install info

I have a '98 GC with a 3" lift. I've been trying to get rid of severe DW. Replaced TB, Drag link tie rod end, aligned, advanced tire balance and still had severe DW. Have "tracked" down to TB (again) so I just ordered an adjustable Rubicon RE1600.

My question is what alignment specs are the best for this set-up. Thanks guys...

What ever makes the axle look like it's centered. Unbolt the TB and use the steering wheel to move the body over the axle until it looks centered then bolt it up. Or you can bounce up and down on the front and shake it side to side and let it settle where it wants. Make sure you are on level ground.

@3" , stock specs would apply .

What's all done to your jeep , springs or spacers for your 3"s . Any lower control arms ? Did you do the shocks also ?

Alignment specs: Toe-in, caster, camber. You know, alignment specifications with a 3" lift.

Spring, shocks, contorl arms. What I did was swap an existing 3" lift off of my '93 ZJ to a '98 ZJ. The one thing I wasn't sure of was if there was an adjustable TB or drop-down bracket on my '93 that wasn't swapped. The '93 is sold and I have been left with a DW from hell. Have to clean the seats every time it happens. Replaced the stock TB with little difference and I'm now going to an adjustable Rubicon and I understand there is no need for a drop-down bracket... I don't have an off-road shop nearby so I'm hoping to give my alignment shop some extra info from you guys.

toe-in is always 1/8 - 1/16th toed in.

i believe castor is +- 4 - 7 degrees. trying to match on each side.

camber is not adjustable on a zj

when you installed your new CA's did you torque the bolts at ride height?
