My Jeep Build

Ok so i figured id start a thread on the build up of my jeep instead of starting a new one everytime i have one little question. My jeep is a 2001 wrangler with and automatic trans and straight six. When i first got it i put on a 3in body lift because i was ingnorant so im starting to fix that problem. I also got in a car accident so i am going to adress those problems to. I got my RE 4.5in SF a few weeks, from DC4WD one of the vendors on JF the service and prices were great, ago and got around to putting it on this weekend, everything went smoothly until we came to pulling of the track bar. We went through a pickle fork before we got it right. Then next problem came when we swapped the torque specs and torqued one of the control arm axle mounts to 130 instead of 85, we were tired is the only excuse i have. So starting this morning im going to go get some replace ments then torque everything down and adjust the trac bar and get started on the rear. Any tips on adjusting the track bar??? and i will post pics for your guy's viewing pleasure soon.

When I did mine, I found it easier by using a helper, to turn the steering wheel while I adjusted the trackbar length, measured, had the steering wheel turned, adjusted the trackbar length, measured, and so on. When the steering wheel is turned, the front wheels will help move the body over the frame.

As to pics. No, you don't need to upload them to a website. There is a "Manage Attachments" button when you start, or reply to, a thread that will allow you to upload pics. There is a size restriction however.

Yes, on the ground with the wheels/tires on. Sorry if I wasn't clear.

With the RE adjustable trackbar (RE1620) you will still use the relocation bracket. If you have an SYE, you use the bracket that is angled to compensate for axle rotation (RE1602). If you don't have an SYE, you use the straight bracket (RE1603).
