Tapered insert for stock TRE

Hi all,

I’m working on an 05 LJ, formerly my fathers and now my mothers. It has a small lift along with a Currie trackbar and steering. My mother has asked if I can lower it back to stock height for her. I know none of this stuff clears at stock height so i am going to be removing it. My only issue is the trackbar bolt has been drilled out for the larger bolt used in the Currie kit.

I was wondering if anyone had a source for a tapered insert that would allow me to go back to the stock TRE. Also open to any solution in which I can clear at stock height.

Apparently @ Mr Blaine says that you just need sufficient clamping force on that connection, no matter what size hole it is. So you should just be able to put in a smaller bolt in the original (or stock) TB, torque to spec and be good.

Has never worked for me.

As for the insert. I know they make inserts for the knuckles, have not heard of one on the TB mount.
