I could be wrong, but wouldn't a stock wagoneer pitman arm be perfect for that. IIRC they were almost flat. A cj7 arm is flat. Can't remenber length differences though.
I don't know. I've read some stuff on using a waggy arm, but I don't know the intricacies of the taper, splines, arc geometry, etc. that's a question for mrblaine me thinks....
OK so here is another question: Does the Currie 9120 TJS trackbar use a 2.5" JJ on the frame mount(single sheer) end? If so, it should fit into this bracket here? : http://claytonoffroad.com/product_in...roducts_id/391
What Im thinking of doing is buying the Clayton double sheer TB bracket which keeps the same position as stock basically(but double sheer instead). Then take the Currie TB, carefully cut off the frame end JJ and reweld/mount 90 degrees into double sheer alignment. Thoughts on this?
that looks like an interesting idea, and based on their measurements it looks almost half the height of the stock mount...which would probably work well with a flat-ish pitman arm. the 2.5" JJ width would suggest an overall width close to 5" by the time you get a grade 8 bolt & nut in double shear....and that's definitely too wide to fit between the tie-rod and diff, but it should sit above enough since it's shorter...thats one of those things that would have to be tried with approx stock bumpstop height. I'd love to see full bump pics of that Clayton double shear setup with 1" or less bumpstop extension...
Mine rubs and I'm don't know what to do, is it that bad that it needs a fix, if so how do I fix it, I'd really prefer to keep my front g2 cover cause its much strong and it already has a few Nicks out of the bottom. I bent my stock track bar and a shop replaced it with an adjustable one. I think it is a Tera flex but idk. I have the currie ultimate steering from savvy it that helps. What to do?
I posted pictures of that Teraflex track bar with a Solid diff cover (same exact shape like you have) earlier in this thread. The verdict was a ridiculous 4" bumpstop extension requirement. You'd need 4" of lift just to have the same suspension travel as a stock Jeep.
Here's how you fix it:
Step 1: Remove that fat diff cover and throw it in the trash or sell it. No you can't keep it. You wasted your money, just like most of us in this thread.
Step 2: Remove that track bar because it doesn't clear the stock cover either. Replace it with a Currie TJS or TJJ model front track bar, which only requires around 2" front bumpstop extension when used with a straight tie-rod & stock diff cover.
Step 3: Remove your springs and push the axle to full bump and determine exactly how much front bumpstop extension you need with your new combination.
Is the JKS bar identical on all the other bends? Does it use the same JJ's? Link or model #?
No, it's not the same. The Currie bar uses better alloy tubing. Either one would work tho. I wouldn't suggest buying a new bar, just to cut up, anyway. Find a used bar to cannibalize.
