JKS track bar on wj

I recently replaced the busings on my JKS track bar on my 2000 wj which made a huge difference in how she drives and got rid of most of the death wobble i was having. I reinstalled the bar the same as it came out but then a few days later i noticed someones pic on this forum showing it installed with the adjustable side of the bar mounted to the axle and not the body like mine is. Can someone tell me if mine was put in right? If anyone has a pic of the front end underside with the JKS installed that would be great too! Thanks

Wow...

The JKS has a preformed curve in it. That track bar needs to be installed with the adjustable section to the left and the curvature on the right side so that, when installed properly, it conforms with and goes around the curve of the front differential.

We all make mistakes...and it is comical when you think about it. If you plan on tooling on your own vehicle you'll have to learn to laugh at yourself too. Great medicine.

You're able to fit 265x75's on with only 2.5 inches? Did you have to trim any, or do you rub some?
edit: ohh, with uc springs. That's what, 3.5in total then?

There was some rubbing on around the bottom of the fogs but a dremel took care of that. I really like the way the 265/75's fit and look. Yep, right about at 3.5'', i think, its been a while since the lift was put in and i measured. Ill check it out tomorrow when i switch the track bar around. The shop also broke one of the bump stop bolts off and never told me, i wish they hadnt gone out of business or id call them up and give them a piece of my mind!

Ill second EIS, the TB position you described is backwards, adjustable side closest to the axle.
