JK Track Bar questions..............!

I have a 2007 4 door 4WD (the only way they should come) and I am having issues with death wobble. I noticed that my track bar bushing was bad on the frame side. This should have been an easy repair. It took 5 minutes to get the track bar out and another 5 minutes to get the old bushings out and that is where I am stuck. I went to Oreillys and they sold me 2 Moog bushings. They are K200708 (one piece), I even went to the trouble of buying a 9/16 bolt (which fits much better than factory. Ok now to the question. One side of the track bar measures 1.4 and the other side measures 1.5. WHAT!!!! The Moog K200708 seems like it will be able to be pressed into the 1.4 but where did this 1.5 come from? What next???

I would recommend ditching the factory bar altogether and going with an adjustable one. Not sure what your ride height is or wheel size but an adjustable one will allow you for changes in the future. Not to mention they are much stronger and more durable. Below is some links to some of our best selling track bars.

I would suggest going with the Rock Krawler one. I run it on my DD and it cured my Death Wobble with a 6" lift on 37s. Also, if you replace the track bar and find you still have death wobble, you may want to look into the ball joints. A lot of time play in the ball joints can lead to a front end wobble. Hope this helps!
