Recommended Yes: 9 / No: 0

The JKS Adjustable Trackbar is an essential upgrade to any lifted Jeep® still using the OE trackbar. The length is easily adjusted to perfectly center the axle housing beneath the vehicle. Unlike relocation brackets, our Adjustable Trackbar is compatible with virtually any suspension system and allows constant changes as vehicle modifications require.
The ends of each JKS Adjustable Trackbar feature bushings specifically chosen to provide maximum off-road performance while minimizing the transfer of road noise and
vibrations. A Johnny Joint® spherical polyurethane (2.0" or 2.5"), Dura-Thane™ performance polyurethane or OE rubber bushing is used, depending on each application's requirements.
Manufactured from 1.25" x 0.156" DOM tubing, JKS Adjustable Trackbars are bent to OE specifications for proper geometry and clearance. A zinc plating and durable powdercoat finish provide excellent protection from corrosion and trail debris.

Comments: very good rear track bar stoped all rear end shimmy, and keeps the rear very smooth in most stiuations, once you get to 85 it starts to rock if you give more or less gas but that the design of the mounts not the track bar

Pros Another quality JKS part. Much beefier than stock, and adjustable. Easy install
Cons None---but mine did not come with bracket as category suggests, nor would I want it to. Direct bolt on.

Pros Helped re-center my axle, adustable end compensated for rotated pinion angle, no heim joints
Cons Slightly fatter than the factory track bar
Recommended yes

Comments: This rear trackbar did what it was supposed to. It helped re-center my rear axle under the Jeep. And because one end was adjustable I was able to slightly rotate it so it aligned properly with the axle TB bracket after my SYE / CV driveshaft install.

I also was much more comfortable with this track bar than bolting on a track bar relocation bracket which would have increased leverage and stress on the axle bracket.

The use of poly bushings instead of heim joints was also a plus in my book. My experience with heim joints is that they are semi-expensive and wear out fast in the NW when gritty, muddy water works their way into the joints. Rubber bushing (or poly in this case) wear much better up here.

During my recent rear axle swap I modified the stock track bar bracket on the axle so that I could reinstall the forged steel OEM track bar.

Pros Beefy trackbar
Cons Not particularly fond of the way the original trackbar brackets are modified by KOR, it allows for a pretty strong bending moment at the mount on the frame side
Recommended yes

Comments: Overall this is a great upgrade. If I were to do it again I think I would either use Clayton's mount or go with the IRO conversion for the reason I mentioned above.
