Rough Country vs. Teraflex 2.5 BB help?

I am trying to decide between these two BBs. Anyone running one or the other, or has tried both? The RC mentions it is recommended to also get the rear track bar bracket to center the axle. Is this necessary and if so, why only the rear? Will I need a track bar bracket for the TF as well?

The clearance is tighter in the rear between the swaybar, frame, brakelines, and wheels/tires. So, the rear axle really needs to be centered, especially if running aftermarket rear swaybar links.

The tolerances in the front are not as close. It is not a big deal to have the axle a little off center with up to a 2.5" lift.

Between those two, the Teraflex has stronger shock extensions and thicker steel for the trackbar bracket. It is worth the extra $.

X2 TeraFlex ... It comes complete with everything you need. I've installed a few of theses and they are problem free and easily upgradeable.

A lift is a lift, whether spring or BB it is suggested that 2.5" + in lift to use either an exhaust space, new exhaust Y pipe or Tom Woods driveshaft.. Any of the 3 will give you driveshaft clearance.
