Currie CE-9120TJS Install question

Hi all,

I am finishing up my Currie 4" lift this weekend, and have a question about the front trackbar install.

The TJS didn't come with instructions and Currie has none on their website.

It is pretty straight forward, you drill the frame end out to 5/8" and install the new Trackbar. My question is where should I put the grade 8 washer?

It could go on the bottom of the joint, between the hex head and the small side of the JJ, or it could go on the top after the bolt comes through the frame mount.

I am sure it is not vital, just wondering if someone that has installed it got instructions with theirs.

It goes on top, and that's according to the install instructions for the front ATB. Just FYI, Currie will email you PDFs of any install instructions they have.

Nope. You're not supposed to use the washer, they told me it's the same as the CE9120. It's only used for XJs & ZJs.

Instructions for Currie stuff here: http://www.currieenterprises.com/ins...ets/index.html

Agreed, it goes on top.

I got non-TJS instructions with mine and emailed them asking if they could correct this for the future as I had to make another trip to the hardware store for a 5/8 bit...I guess they didn't yet.

Well, that's interesting. I somehow ended up with two different instruction sheets for the track bar. One of them is longer and more detailed, and it says nothing about leaving out the washer on the TJ. The other instruction sheet is shorter and looks like it was made in a hurry, and that one says to leave it out on the TJ, as you said. Plus the one on their website says to leave it out. I think I'll call them for clarification and take mine out if necessary.

Actually, hold the phone here. The instructions on their site that say to leave off the flat washer are for a TB with a 9/16" bolt on the frame side drop bracket. Those instructions also do not have a part number for the ATB. The longer and more detailed instructions I have are specifically for the CE-9120TJJ and CE-9120TJS with a 5/8" bolt. And those instructions say to use the washer.

So it looks like the procedures are different depending on whether you have the 5/8" or 9/16" bolt. Which do you have, RubiconRazorbac?

That's why I called them when the thing first came out to see if the instructions were the same since there were none for the new 5/8" HD model. The guy told me they were the same instructions. I ended up keeping the 9/16" version. At the time, I was about to order the 5/8" but decided against since I had the earlier one & have no probs.

Anyway, that's where the info on the washer came from. If it's changed since, good to know and I stand corrected

The 9/16" version is/was the JKS track bar Currie sells with a currie part# that also has a conical sleave that fills the remainder of the taper the 9/16" bit doesn't drill out.
if the washer fits the grove I use it, if not, it'll bend up into a taco shape and come loose on you later.
