Rear track bar rubbing on springs, solutions?

Hey Ive had this problem after I corrected the pinion angle on the rear axle when I got the new driveshaft in. When I flex hard or go over a bump hard my rear springs will brush the rear track bar. Are there any adaptors I can buy that will move the track bar out a bit? Hasnt gave me any real problems, just some ginding noises while on the sand dunes. Its already an adj track bar so I didnt want to replace the whole thing and find I have the same problem with a different one. I cant be the first one to have this problem, what are some solutions?

Maybe going with a relocating bracket. Early designs were poor fir the JK but have since been improved. Based on my experience with poly performance high steer kit, I'd say give their rear bracket a try.

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.

Check to see how your springs are sitting in the upper mounts.
I had the same problem and my spring was shifted to the rear of the mounting position.
Had to disconnect almost everything to get it loose enough to slide back over, but since that I'm good, no problems at all.

x2 - I had it unseat a bit during hard breaking, and had the EXACT same issue, but removing the spring and reseating it fixed the problem.
