Advantages of front and rear adjustable trac bars ?

Do I get any advantage with front and rear adjustable trac bars ? I installed a front one when installed my RE 3.5 SF and now I'm waiting for the rear one to arrive home. Do I suppose to uninstall the rear tracbar bracket provided with the RE 3.5 SF and install the adjustable rear one, or do I need to leave the bracket in place and install the adjustable tracbar. If so, what's the advantage of have a rear adjustable trac bar ? I know one of the advantages of have the front one is that I doen't needed to drill an additional hole in my front tracbar mounting bracket, but what about the rear one ? I'm confused !

The advantage is you can center the axles. The brackets are a "one size fits all" deal that may or may not center your particular axle.

You don't use the bracket with the rear adjustable track bar, it goes into the original mounting bracket on the axle.

Not to cause and argument here but...

I would use the track bar bracket with your new adjustable track bar. You will get a greater amout of droop out the the left rear with it installed. You may get binding problems without the bracket because the track bar will be at a greater angle and the origonal mounting location is boxed and the track bar will strike the top of the bracket. Your RE bracket is open on top so there is nothing to bind up on. RE even makes a tilted bracket if you are running a steep pinion angle with a larger lift so the track bar is not forced to twist when the suspension cycles.

No, that's not correct. Use the trackbar relocating bracket that came with your lift with use of an adjustable track bar.
