I'm in the middle of my rear outboard project and am looking for some second opinions. A couple moving pieces here:
First dropped the jeep from a 4.5" lift to 3.5" and then took measurements from there to complete the outboard.
Now, I had to cut off the rear frame track bar mount to accommodate the new shock towers. I'm circulating around and need to fab up a mount. I have built something very similar to the below picture that Mr. Blaine completed for Glockster's build. However, as of right now, the end of my RE adjustable track bar is coming about 1/4" past the inside frame with the axle resting at ride height. I got rid of the RE track bar bracket to see if that would help any but it didn't. I then brought the track bar's length all the way in and still nothing. The axle is clearly out of center. (now that I'm typing this out, I wish I could go back with my thought process on these two actions). IF I dropped the axle to increase the distance between the mounts, and the installed the track bar, I should be good, correct?
As the axle comes back to normal ride height the track bar will do it's job and position the axle where it should be.
Should I adjust the track bar back out a little and also add back the bracket? right now at full bump there's a hair of bind on the axle mount. otherwise okay...
Also, my bracket idea has the mount hole a little closer to the frame, similar to stock style. that shouldn't matter much?
It's been a long three days with this project and my head is just cooked right now, being mindful of my own and other's safety here, I appreciate any feedback.
