Mopar Adjustable trackbar failed?

I am looking to replace the front adjustable trackbar that came with my dealer installed 2' Mopar lift. I was out running some desert track this last week and was noticing more suspension noise than usual. At first I thought the front electronic sway bar was the problem so I disconnected it completely and did a test drive, no change. Then when turning the steering wheel back and fourth, I found a "popping" noise to come from the front trackbar at the (Hiem) joint.
I have already replaced all the springs with 2" HD Old Man Emu's as the Mopar springs were to soft when the truck was loaded. And now it looks like more of the Mopar kit needs to go.
There has been a small bit of wheel shimmy after hitting a bump since the Jeep was new. It would be great if a different track bar would eliminate that problem also.
Can anyone recommend a quality front track Bar?

Thanks KBR,
I'll check into the JKS at my local 4x4 shop.
When I looked at the link it also showed a pic of a "Johnny Joint" that looks close to what the Mopar kit supplied.
Maybe i'll look into Long Arms for my JK while I'm at it. I just didn't think they were needed with only a 2" lift. I want the truck to handle well when I'm running the desert tracks with slight speed.

I bought one of these for my 2010 sarhara with 2 1/2 lift. Tera flex monster HD. It was 200+ but worth every penny more.

I have had good results with other teraflex parts I bought for a TJ so Teraflex is also a strong contender

If you want really good control arms look into Currie Enterprises arms. Not sure if they make them yet for the JK but its worth it to check them out.

I went ahead and bought the Teraflex HD and it went on easy. I feel like an idiot though, I did a test drive and noticed the steering wheel was not exactly straight and it did pull ever so little to the right (thought I had it adjusted close enough to get it to the alignment shop) and the ESP light has now come on.
Am I going to have to take it to the dealer after the alignment shop and have them clear the code? I thought I read somewhere that it will go into a "Limp" mode with the ESP code flashed and it will only travel at slower speeds. Is this true?
Can Anyone set me straight on what I need to do to get things right?
Jeff
