Shortly after my 2.5 rubicon express lift and new joints all the way around ( ball joints, drag links, tie rod ends and a rubicon express steering stabilizer) I was still getting massive shakes (and one occurrence of DW) in the steering wheel over bumps. Only a days worth of driving with new trackbar bolts in but what a difference in the feel over bumps. Just wanted to back everyone who has said to do this upgrade on the forum and encourage every jk owner to swap out those 14mm bolts with threads all the way to the head of the bolt.
Good stuff. 2 bolts? Did you do both ends of the front or 1 end on each?

With what came in my AEV and Northridge kit combined, I have replaced both ends on trackbar, both ends on upper CA's and frame side on lower CA's. As per this thread I ordered the synergy cam washers and will be replacing axle side lower CA's. Easy and inexpensive upgrade.

Sorry, I was referring to the AEV geo correction bracket kit. It came with sleeves for the OEM metric bolts on the upper and lower CA's frame side to eliminate the threads. I have heard good things about that lift though. Cheers!
