I would make a straight trackbar since you have to cut that one down. I've done it a couple times and it will work better. Then you can buy/fabricate a proper double shear mount at the frame.

IF you don't want to fabricate an axle mount the JKS piece works well.

I assume then if I went double shear at the frame that I would want the end in the exact same location, just rotated 90 %%d ?

It would allow you to move it forward a touch since you would use a non-bent trackbar. You'll want to do this to clear the diff. Just watch the pitman arm clearance. The RE mount may work, but I haven't used it. I built one similar for my wife's XJ for the RE bar.


Here's my TJ though at full bump. Yours won't need to be so tight, this has 2 inches of stretch.

what slack? unless you are using a bushing, and having it enter the bracket at an angle... but that would be silly...

Based on the picture he posted he did use bushings, which actually brings me to my next question bushings heims or jhonny joints? I imagine that the consenses is using to using heims on both ends?
