Go with an adjustable track bar otherwise you'll end up with the same problem.
eBay should have them though

Maybe I read that wrong. I think you mean the actual bracket welded on the axle. Try tntcustoms.com or ruff stuff they should have it

Checked both no luck. It's the bracket that has the upper control arm built into it

Yeah I'm ordering a new adjustable one but I can't even find a new stock bracket.

The real reason it broke was because both my bumpstops some how fell out and the bracket hit on the bottom of the jeep breaking it

Iron Rock has a bracket kit for converting Ford 8.8 rear axle to a ZJ. You might be able to adapt that kit. Or you can make a new bracket.

I talked to Kolak and he is seeing if they will sell me just the track bar bracket from the kit, also am trying to get it fabbed locally

If you can't find one through any of the aftermarket manufacturers, take measurements and fab your own from box steel. It is very easy to do if you have an angle grinder, 10mm and 12mm drill bits and a welder. Half an hour job
