RE adjustable rear track bar???

What end goes to the axle side and should I leave the old track bar bracket from my old lift or take it off???

The side with the rubber goes on the frame, the one with the heim misalignment setup goes to the axle. Did you get a bracket with the RE TB? There are two different ones, one for CV (angled #1602) and one for non-CV (straight #1603). Does it line up with your current bracket?

I have the angled track bar. Looks just like the factory bar. I didn't get the bracket with my kit.

Yes, the RE track bar is angled. Sorry I wasn't clear, I meant the RE TB brackets are either straight or angled. Hope it works out for you. When we did ours, we used the angled bracket because we had the adjustable upper control arms and a CV drive shaft.

I have adjustable UCA and CV driveshaft(well I will before the weekend is out). I have a straight track bar bracket already on from my black diamond lift. The angled bracket will have to come later unless I run into problems. Right now everything looks like its going to work....I hope.

Once you rotate the rear axle to set the pinion angle, you may find that the trackbar doesn't clear the gas tank skid if you don't go to a bracket that angles it forward. You won't really know until you've adjusted the pinion angle, but it's a common scenario.
