Already have the Moog front track bar, plan to bring that in for the warrenty as it is lifetime.
What do you guys think Is this a smart set up? I want to remove all play in my steering and get it ready for an alignment prior to getting new tires.
I would probably avoid that steering setup. I have heard people say that that particular setup on a jeep has dead spots in the steering. I also believe the joints arent too good on it. If you've got the money, definitely go with the Currie setup. It is stout, and a great upgrade over stock. If you can't swing that much on steering right now. The ZJ upgrade is good too. It uses the same drag link as stock, but the tie rod is stronger and has bigger ends.
Also with 4.5" of lift, you arent using an adjustable track bar? Are you using a bracket instead?
