Sorry if this has already been asked, but I couldn't find anything in a quick search. I just installed the IRO 3.5 lift kit, and now I have DW so bad that the jeep is scary to drive. I got the adjustable front trac bar, but the kit also came with a drop bracket. I'm a little confused. Do I need to put the drop bracket on with the adj. trac bar? I've changed the CA bushings, adjusted the toe in and had it aligned.
Only use the track bar, do not install the drop bracket.

The adjustable trac bar that comes with the kit needs the drop bracket? I notiiced that it did not have anywhere near the same bends as the stock bar, is that why? My axle is fairly well centered right now without it
If you have the adjustable track bar, the track bar drop bracket isn't necessarily needed. If you end up getting a drop pitman arm I would recomend using the drop bracket to keep the track bar and steering link as parrallel as possible. If the two are not parrallel bump steer will increase and may induse death wobble. For those using the drop bracket, don't trust the bolt alone. It will still move around and cause death wobble. Weld it in place. You can do it your self or take it to a shop and have it done. Either way you will alleviate a lot of headaches and scary moments.
The double shear bar is a totally different design than the stock bar - you need the conversion bracket (drop bracket). Not to be confused with a rear trackbar bracket, which excels at breaking the mount.
