Fancy...

Looks like mine has more clearance with 1.5" bumpstop requirements than the mc with your 2" stops... It is a takeoff, unknown brand, i cut off the cold cut axle end and rotated it a bit and one rib.

Recycled Ram 3500 to tj track bar.

I cut off the bad tre, drilled and taped it out for a 3/4" heim. My intended joint was a 1" shank, narrow 2" Johnny joint but i couldnt seem to find my 1" tap.
It got put in the bender for bracket clearance and to level the angle for the frame side. Measured and shortened for the current lift height. It will get a tj cleavite replacement bushing in place of the 14mm dodge bushing. The hole isnt egged out, there is no reason for drilling it out anyway as the 10mm bolt is sufficient due to the clamping force it is capable of.

I dig it. But it would take less effort and time to drill the axle bracket holes out and slap a new bolt in vs. installing a new Clevite bushing. Cheaper, as well.

Besides a 14mm/ 9/16" drill bit, 14x70mm bolt, prevaling torque nut, washers and cutting part of the bottom off the axle bracket to fit a 13/16"/21mm ( 7/8 if you cant get a shouldered nut), wrench in there to hold the nut, the moog k7252/ dodge clevite bushing doesnt flex as well as the tj bushing having a much smaller sleeve and the cold cut rings need to shaved to use them as a replacement. I refuse to install any polly bushing in there. A factory rear track bar bushing can be substituted, drilling out the hole to 12mm. I havent yet come up with a part number/application for one yet. I have reused them before tho, it's not always easy to get them out not harming them.
