3" Lift - Trackbar relocation bracket - front

Seems like it would bring the axle back to spot on center.

Anyone seen one of these or know how well they work?

also, would you really need a new dropped pitman?

Thanks,


JEEPLESS... :(

They work fine.An adjustable track bar is better if you want to spend the money.NO dropped pitman arm! It will screw things up

Have you seen this specific product or are you commenting on relocation brackets in general?

Figured an adjustable is better but sometimes cheaper is the need...

True. This specific bracket requires the use of a dropped pitman arm. Personally, I wouldn't use it, but there is a guy I work with that runs this and likes it.

EDIT: I agree that an adjustable track bar is the way to go...

...Sometimes, the more you see, the less you understand...

I miss my Jeep. On the hunt for a replacement.

It will screw things up if you don't use one, you have to keep that track bar parallel and if you drop the track bar you must also use a drop pitman arm.
