Front Track Bar Issue

so i've noticed that if i crawl under the jeep and someone turns the steering wheel back and forth, the lower bolt on the upper track bar (the bent one) moves back and forth in the mounting bracket like the hole is wollered out. anyone else have this issue before?

stock track bar? If so, sounds like the bar is worn out. Easy fix, go to NAPA and pick up a new track bar. if not stock, post picture.

Are you talking about the bolt at the axle end or the frame end? The axle end is a very common problem and mine is as you describe currently. I just found a tighter fitting bolt and tightened it up more, so far so good. But I know before long I am going to need to fix it right.

I am still trying to figure out a way to correct it. I normally will just tack on a washer on the outside, but you can't get to the back side of that bracket which is where the problem is on mine! I am probably going to end up cutting the bracket off completely and making a new one out of something thicker.
