I had one that was for 0-3" of lift but I am under the impression that they do not make that anymore.

why? because I have an entire IRO lift kit (sans the springs) under the SE base model build that went back to stock and i can't seem to get rid of any of the old lift kit parts I have lying around. whatever is left by 1/1 is either going on e-bay or thrown in the dumpster at work! sick of this crap lying around!

There is a reason they don't just make one adjustable track bar for all heights. Cutting one up to make it shorter is probably a bad idea even if you didn't ruin the threads in the process.
I had a Rustys track bar blow the threads apart while I was driving. It was not fun and I was lucky I was only going 30 or I may have had a serious accident.
When I got the bar the threads were messed up so I sent it back to them. All they did was re tap the bar and send it back to me. That must have weakened it enough to separate. Cheap bastards.

Also there are plenty of people on here all the time looking for less expensive lift kit parts or entire lifts. I'd post it in the for sale section and then put a link in the forum.

yeah that's true too, it's not meant for stock for a reason.

It sold today believe it or not now hopefully the rest of my for sale thread parts sell.
