Pushing rear axle back vs trackbar clearance

I've got a 3.5 inch lift with a UCF ultra high skid with a rear pinion set to about 19 degrees.

I'm running an "old style" rear Currie trackbar (single JJ) with a "new style" angled trackbar bracket. After pinion angle adjustments I had to shorten both lowers and uppers so that the trackbar would clear the lower part of the frame crossmember (where the gas tank skid bolts to).

I just relocated my upper rear spring perches and want to push the rear axle back. The question is - will the "new style" rear Currie track bar with double JJ allow me to push it back about 1/2" - 1" or so?

I'm also concerned with exhaust clearance - with my current setup the track bar touches the exhaust at full droop. Will the "new style" Currie bar still clear the exhaust?

Checked tire against tub at full bump today. Tire and tub are only 3/8" apart (tire is close to the front side of the wheel arch), so I definitely need to move the rear axle...
