4 Inch Skyjacker Question

I have a 4 inch skyjacker that me and a buddy installed about 4 months ago on my 97 TJ. The sway bar links are just barely off the frame...I mean I can't even fit my pinky finger between the top of the sway bar links and my frame...this isn't normal is it? If I did any wheeling I'm afraid they would smack the frame!!

Thanks...

Sam

when you installed the kit did you redrill your front trackbar hole or install a new adjustable front trackbar? It sounds like if you did you didnt drill it far enough over of you didnt adjust your trackbar enough to center the axle back...If you look at the other sice, the swaybar should be farther than normal. THe entire swaybar has actually shifted towards the drivers side because of the swing of the trackbar.

The best solution to this is an adjustable front trackbar...but I have seen bandaid solutions that use clams to hold the swaybar centered in its bushings....

We drilled a new hole. It didn't come with a new trackbar. One side seems a little bit closer to the frame...but hardly noticeable.
