do i need a trac bar??

im almost done with building the 8.8 to fit the tj AGAIN. I do not have a trac bar cause i had leafs before and the bracket was cut off. I have material to make a new bracket now but i dont know if i need one. The rear is 4 link triangulated. The clayton hard arm long arm kit. I cant find anything online. Do i need a trac bar for the rear. or is that only with the 3 link?

I have rear 4 link with the uppers being triangulated.

I don't have a rear track bar.

Because it is triangulated, no you don't need a trac bar
