a trackbar is a 5th suspension arm that holds the axle from moving laterally (side to side). it goes from driverside of the jeep to passanger side of the axle in the front, and oposite in the back.

if you can visualize what happens when you lift your jeep 3.5 inches, you can see how the axle gets pulled a few inches to the driverside (in the front) if you dont adjust the trackbar.

the IRO trackbar conversion adds a longer adjustable track bar, and a new bracket and joint that is significantely stronger, and allows more rotation than the stock one.


in my opinion, i would still add a rear track bar on top of that kit too. and control arms as well

The track bar conversion is awesome...I highly recomend it. I have one on mine, and it eliminated bumpsteer that I had. I think it's because the new mount drops the track bar down for a better angle that is more parallel to the axle, and that's what eliminates the bumpsteer.

You need to do something with your front track bar anyway at 3.5, and IMO the conversion is well worth the extra $$.

And you actually save money with the kit that comes with the track bar conversion...I paid 189 for mine. In the kit, it only works out to be $145.

And don't be fooled by the cheaper price of the first kit, that is in no way a complete kit. And with either kit you still need to do something with your rear track bar too.
