nope.

if you really want to use it, you can redrill the lower track bar mount like many do to reuse a stock track bar and you can use the RE one. i've done that.
then i replaced it with a IRO double sheer.

ok so adjust the RE to 4.5" max lift and drill a new hole next to the existing one at the length i need for 5.5-6" lift
maybe like an inch or so?

edit: i just found this but not sure what size lift TB it is for it would be perfect

not sure if its the same thread pitch. if it is it might; but it could also be different lengths. you'd have to order it to find out.

drill teh hole over about 3/4" like instructions on most lift kits will tell you, then you can use the RE trackbar. but if its in good shape i'd just sell it and order the IRO one

Bringing this thread back. I got the RE 4.5" Lift Springs and been trying to get my axle centered. Turns out the RE1600 is too short for even a 4.5" Lift by like.... 3/4" to be safe. I was just under the jeep and have the measurements I needed to adjust the track bar. Start to screw it out about a little less than a half an inch and damn thing fell off right onto my face!

I'm kinda worried I wont be able to take it back to 4 wheel parts because it has a couple scratches from falling on the cement off of my chest or the bolt has been torqued down a couple times so it has the marks to show for it. I guess I can ask. I told the guy at 4wheelparts I needed the trackbar for the 4.5" lift. But I guess its not his fault since its labeled for it.
