zj front to rear spring 4" lift rear track bar info

if you do the budget lift, front to rear springs and buying new front springs, pay attention. anyways, i just finished mine and wanted to post this info on the rear trak bar. with the factory front springs installed in the rear, the rear axle DOES move over towards the passenger side quite a noticeable bit. the factory length of the rear track bar on a 4.0 zj is 31" bolt to bolt. dont try to press out all of the bends because, one, it is highly dangerous, and two, it makes the ends not line up parallel so you would have to cut them and re-weld them straight anyways. do the right thing and cut and lengthen the rear track bar near the axle mountiong hole, where the bar is straight. the correct eye-to-eye measurement should be 32". i highly recommend this if you do this type of lift. hope this helps the future "lifters"

Yes, this is pretty common, a lot of people either get a new trackbar, a trackbar bracket or just redrill the old one. Even with my 2"BB it's noticeable that the axle has slightly shifted.

ok, my post was for the budget minded people who don't want to spend the extra money on an adjustable track bar or buy more parts, like the relocator.
