I'm running into the same issue now, yet every thread I find is a dead end with no answer. The instructions don't match the hardware for the JKS bar, and can't find pics of how it should go :/

The instructions are crap. Also make sure the bolts will go thru both sleeves on the shock and are long enough. I had to drill one sleeve on upper shock and get longer bolts. Yes the clamp goes on the track bar but I had to use a c clamp to squeeze it enough to get a holt thru. I can send detailed pictures this afternoon whe I get home. Did mine a week ago.

Is this what you're trying to accomplish? I just grabbed an extra clamp from my old track bar and moved it up. It sure is nice having it up and out of the way!

Thanks Chris! Yes, I think that's exactly what I need to get an idea of how to do it. I guess my concern was with keeping it as parallel as possible with the drag link. When quickly looking at mine, I couldn't tell if I would be able to do that without causing some interference somewhere.

Found this image also on Kevin's site. Hard to see the drag link end, but looks a lot like yours, so that's the route I'll go for

I assume these instructions? I'm not a native english speaker, but they seem pretty clear to me. It could do with pictures though. I don't know exactly (yet ) what makes a JKS track bar different from a standard one, but apparently there's a difference in the steering stabilizer product when you have a JKS. You did get the JKS trackbar specific one, no?

If what you received looks anything like the picture on the IRO website you should have a clamp that goes on the drag link and a "U" shaped bracket that goes on the track bar bolt. Even without clear instructions it should be pretty easy to figure out. If you're indeed missing a part, now would be the time to contact your reseller or IRO and have it sent over.

Yep. Those instructions are for the stock track bar. The JKS trackbar comes with different hardware, and no instructions for where it should be positioned. It should be obvious, but always easier to see a pic of one, so I can get a better idea of where it should connect to the track bar (since it's an odd shape, and pretty tight up near the top). The instructions lead you to think the driver side connects to the track bar, and pass side to the drag link. But the two pics above made me realize I need to swap those positions.

I agree, pictures are a good help and IMO any decent installation manual should have them. Myself, I tend to use youtube a lot for instructional videos on how to do stuff.

Perfect! Thanks!!

That's how I attempted to do mine last night. Unfortunately, I used one of the bar clamps for my primary stabilizer, since the stock clamp wouldn't fit the JKS tie rod :/. I was going to remove the primary anyway, but couldn't get the dang bolt loose on the axle end. Off to pick up a longer breaker bar tonight.....

Just as an FYI - The nut on the axle side mount is welded on. Look very close in this picture and you'll see it attached to the bracket.
