No it's a solid piece of steel. No adjustment, what you see is what you get. When you lift it becomes to short to keep the rear diff centered and will default the diff to one side. You adjust the new track bar to be longer than stock

Have any pictures? I'll be putting the same lift and strut/shock pair in within the month. This thread has taught me a lot, so I need an adjustable trac bar?

Here is what the angles look like on the ground, similar



On the subject of track bar, you don't 'need' an adjustable one, its better to have one though on a lifted GC. Anything that returns components back to stock position is beneficial, or compensate for the changes. I will also be getting the rusty's adjustable Track Bar

In my case however the priority is the UCA ..

Forgot my truck hasn't been pictured yet in the garage here, been spending too much time on the 'other' forum here is what the final product looks like.

Here is the beast:





Now I am in between the RRO and JBA UCA, just emailed JBA to ask a few questions about the length of the UCA to make sure the strut clearance issue is resolved...

What length are you guys doing on the BWoody's. I have the OME HD on my rig, and the bushings on the stock links are dead. I know the OME HD adds about 3" of lift, and i know the links dont have to get that much longer. I have heard about 1/2" up front and an inch in the rear.

I have the RC and I am running stock length upfront and +1" in the rear. I think 1/2" upfront and 1 1/2-2" in the rear will work well for you
