Are People Painting Their Trackbar?

I've seen more and more Jeep with colored track bars and tie rods. Are they merely buying from brands who offer colored equipment or is painting them the thing to do? I kinda like it. It's a nice way to add some color accents. I assume it'd be rather safe if you meticulously masked everything. I don't think I've ever heard someone say they got DW and went off the road because a couple oz's of paint.

Painting my Trackbar cured my DW... It works like a harmonic balancer... just needs a couple oz of paint.

Absolutely!!! you can use it to balance out your tires too, other great uses is to cure cracked rubber bushings in your track bar and control arms.

You can even use it to fill in and repair the worn track bar bolt hole on the axle!!!.

If you purchase the optional grease Zerk fitting adapter you can even repair any wear gaps and lube all your TRE's and ball joints along with reconditioning your dust boots at the same time!!!! WOW!!!

If you also use it on your yolks, drive shafts and U joints!, its a miracle cure for incorrect pinion angles too!!!

So yes its a cure all for everything that ails your jeep including the dreaded DW!!!

In all seriousness, the paint is really just a protector from all the rust of these jeeps seem to find...

Hahha seriously? Who would've thought. Rustoleum would work best for this application, right?

It depends on what color you paint them. From what I've seen online, Lime Green is a good color...
