The patient: 97 TJ with Skyjacker 6" longarm lift and 35" tires.
The issue: Trackbar bolt and tie rod end are meeting.
Provoked by: Adjusting the +10 caster back to +5 caster. Can't go back either, as the two components were already too close. Going to have to fix this one quick before there is a meltdown.
Options so far:
1. Rebuild the track bar bracket (running out of room already from the diff truss).
2. Replace the tie rod end with a heim joint (don't really want to drill out my drag link).
3. Replace the track bar end with a heim joint (wow...that's alot of work).
4. Replace the stock TJ drag link and tie rod with stock ZJ components and see if new hardware affords a little space (cool but kinda pricey).
I need some help deciding on this one. Any thoughts on the options or other options? Also, I'm not a master fabricator, but know how to do a little welding and have a saw. I can Bridgeport like nobody's business, but I'm short the Bridgeport, so simplicity wins the day.
