Too late to salvage the track bar bushings? I think they were going before the lift. I had the same clunk before the lift and before the new tie rods. I thought it was the tie rods, I guess it was the track bar going.

Ill have to do all that with the control arms when I get back home. Hope the control arms can survive another 5-600 miles before that happens.

So what do you think about the after market track bar situation?

IRO or JKS, doesn't make too much difference. JKS is a baller name brand though. Having installed both, I think I prefer the IRO adjustable very slightly. The JKS bushing sleeve seems a little too long for the poly bushings, you really have to reef on the bolts to get it tight enough to take out the slop. And the IRO bar has two jam nuts to keep tight, whereas the JKS has a single and it originally came loose on me the first 100 miles (although I think that was maybe Firestone's fault).

Well, maybe ill just toss my JKS bar on there because I have it and it is brand new. Did you use the bolts that came with it, or did you upgrade? Id assume you were able to take the slop out of your jks bar?

Any salvage for my current TB. I'd hate for it to get worse in the time being. Idk what I would do if it broke while away. I guess screwed myself for not doing it. But I guess I am just trying to do damage control at the moment.

No, you can't fix broken bushings. Not without removal and then using poly bushings meant for a TJ rear track bar. And you might as well install your JKS bar that you apparently already have if you are going to do that. Just drive it, it's not the end of the world. I drove an Audi from Sacramento to Seattle in the dead heat of August with only 3 cylinders working and the front struts and control arms (original at 240,000 miles) ready to fall out of the car. By myself, in one straight shot from 5PM to 6AM the next day.

The moral of this story is that "not perfect" doesn't mean "falling apart". If you need it now, do it now. If you can't do it right away, it doesn't sound like your current bar is totally trashed, just on it's way out. Take a couple deep breaths and meditate a little. I'd hate to see your blood pressure!

Alright. Well I just let it alone for now. There is a little slop it hope for the time being it will survive. I got a brand new JKS track bar for free with the springs way back when. Why I did not put it on with the spring... I don't know hahaha.

If worse comes to serious worse while I am away. Ill have a jeep dealer up here put in a new stock track bar. If it comes to that. Just gonna ride it out for now. But ill plan now on putting in the JKS bar, cranking it down, and then cycling the control arms when I get back home.

Tell you what man, trust me.... trust me, I wish I wasn't so uptight and just calm down about stuff. I am just so freaked about because of the previous jeep and all the b.s. and issues that had.

That's a bad idea. Just have your parents ship you the bar and install it. You'd be throwing hundreds of dollars away on something you don't want or need.

Go to rockauto and go to suspension, tie rods, and filter for Moog. There are only 4 listings for Moog tie rods. Get them all.
