Adj. Front Trackbar Help

I am going to be installing the Rough Country 3.25" lift without the rear spacers and with a 1" body lift and MML.

What adjustable front trackbar does everyone recomend?

I was looking at one from teraflex but am open to suggestions.

I didn't know they came out with a new one, I had heard some mixed reviews about their older one so I started to move away from it. So basically the new one is on par with most of the other stuff on the market for reliability?

The only problem I have with JKS is that I have read a lot of reviews about it hitting the D30 diff cover. JKS claims there may be some interference with the D44 but lots of people have apparently had problems with the D30.

The older ones barely fit with a 4" lift and wouldn't work on anything smaller.They also weren't as thick as the newer ones.Here's a link.

yup mine hits my Riddler diff cover, but only off-road at full flex when the drivers side is stuffed, or at full compression of both front springs.

How do you make sure that the axel is centered? On another site, it says to lower the jeep before centering. I need some tips on this step.

Thanks

I don't look for problems....They find me.

You have to have the weight of the Jeep on the axle to center it. I always just put it on the ground and measure. Then I use a ratchet strap run from the frame to the axle to pull it over to center.
