i just installed my rc 2.5 coil and shocks and didnt need any new track bar or sway bar links. one piece of advice is to track bar relocatin brackets. they keep your axels in line.

From what I have gathered, its not required by most manufacturers, but wouldn't hurt to have. Pretty much any amount of lift shifts the axle some (less noticeable with less lift)...2.5" usually shifts the axle about 1/4" (this coming right out of RC's instructions).

The rear should come with a relocation bracket so no worries there...however the front will still be off slightly.

For what it's worth, I got 3'' of lift out of my Rusty's Offroad coil lift, and didn't replace anything but the springs and shocks and everything is fine for me. If my axles are off, you would need a tape measurer to notice and it has no effect on driving so far. My sway bar links are a bit short, but until I can get some new links it's fine, if not a bit wobbly on speed bumps.

If it were me, I wouldn't bother with a new track bar until I was finished with all my other mods. I still have a few thousand dollars to spend before I'm finished

You don't need it but you're axle won't be centered without it.
