Help with Rough Country track bar bushing replacment

Hello
Can anybody tell me what bushing part number directly fits in to the Rought country Track bar?
My Jeep started to shake when i accelerate at around 20 to 40 MPH, I did the Steering test and it looks like my Rough country track bar is loose. The tie rod end I found information on this forum that it could be replased by Moog ER140 or ES3096L, but I could not find any information about what bushing could be used. there are a few threads here on how to use the aftermarket Moog and Energy suspension, but all of them mention that the metal shaft has to be salvaged from the original bushing. I am not sure if my is intact, and because part lead time to my location is terrible, I would like to get a full direct replacemnt set on the first try.

are you looking for the frame side or axle side?

I used a MOOG ES3097L on the frame side of my old RC track bar and Rubicon Express bushing on the axle side.

RC makes different track bars with different type bushings on the frame side. You need to fill out your profile and state which track bar you have.

Many aftermarket track bars use a factory bushing at the axle end I thought?
Might run Into you local parts store, and see if they have one in stock to compare.

Frame side has the tie rod end the MOOG ES3097L. I am interested in the oposite end the axle end part, the only one that has the bushing.
RDaniel2405 Which Rubicon Express part did you use?

First I tried the 10mm hole one, >( http://www.quadratec.com/products/16311_641.htm )

But, my axle side bolt hole was slightly ovaled out, then I went to the 1/2'' one ( http://www.quadratec.com/products/16311_642.htm) and got a bolt, washers, and nylon lock nut from Lowes

You are correct, I miss typed the end i was referring too, sorry.
Axle side often, but not always, uses a factory size bushing.
check the local parts store to see if they have one in stock to compare to yours.

Try moog k3147. That should fit the oem track bar axle end i believe.

Checking local stores is sort of a problem. There are not any. Jeeps are sort of rare in norther Europe, it easy to find BMW, Toyotas and Nissans here, but Jeep is a favored by just a few fans. There is like 15 Wranglers in my country and probably around 300 jeeps total. Most of the parts have to be preordered, so I can not just see what fits at the store and have to order them ether from stores or from online shops. That is why I am asking for advice here, so I could order it online.

That sucks, but makes you really special.

Ok, I contacted Rough Country, they stated that they use a SD00A237231 Clevite bushing which is custom built just for them. That makes no sense to me for such a low production vs using a factory bushing. Does anyone have more current information on what rough country currently uses? Tim

I'd ditch the RC track bar altogether and get a MC one.

Yeah, I considered it, right up until I saw a heim joint. The rough country is forged, has real clevite bushing and I was hoping to swap them out for DDB's someday.

Can you estimate the measurement? I seriously doubt RC really has it specially produced. More likely a standard size that has a different number because of RC's deal. It sucks that the person you talked to either failed to see the likely obvious, or may have chosen to be a dick.

Anyone know if the new OP needs a press-in adapter?
