So it appears the bushings on my trackbar are going out on my 2006 TJ.
I have the aftermarket Adjustable trackbar from RC and every once in a while i get a pop sound when turning slow and steering feels really loose. At high speed sometimes it feels like a patch of ice was touched.
I looked under my jeep and my trackbar is moving just like this one:
Generally it made noise, but then I added grease and it stopped making noise.. Little did i know that movement was a sign of bad bushings.
Tomorrow im going to craw under there and get a vid my self.
-Do i have to buy the bushing from RC? Or would autozone have a compatible one handy I can get and install to have the problem fixed tomorrow?
- is the track bar under some kind of tension i should be aware of? Or can i just unbolt it while its sitting on the ground no worries? I really dont want it to be unbolted and the bar come smack me in the face and engine fall on my chest ya know :3
It looks simple enough I'd love to fix it my self.
Any tips someone would like to share on getting the job done?
