Hi everyone. I recently purchased a 98 TJ sahara that has what it looks like a 2 inch spring spacer lift and 1 inch body lift. Shocks were done so I replaced them and I noticed the passenger side rear tire sticks out a little more than the driver side. After I researched the forum I figured a track bar relocation bracket should fix it. I bought one from rough country and installed it but my tires are in the same position. May be a little better but still not centered. The jeep drives perfectly straight. If anyone ran in to this before, please let me know.
I'm uploading a picture just in case I'm wrong on my lift size...
Do you have a spacer on one of the wheels and not the other?
If it sticks out more on the passenger side it means your track bar is too short. A relocation bracket would normally solve the problem. Check for spacers. If no spacers you may need an adjustable rear track bar. Also check to make sure both track bar mounts are straight and attached firmly.
Have you tried an adjustable rear track bar? My front axle is off center because of a 3 inch lift and a stock track bar. Im putting an adjustable track bar in over labor day weekend, which everyone ive found says fixes the problem of relocating the axle.
'04 Sahara, 3" Skyjacker Lift, 1" Body Lift, 33" Duratracs, and a ridiculously bright LED light bar!
I thought about that but it did it with my old wheels and it's doing it now with these...
Guess that narrows it down to suspension then. Have you checked your track bar mounts? Are they tweaked or are they still true? If the mounts are true then I would start with buying and installing an adjustable track bar.
I'd say less then an inch. The track bar mounts look good. I'm guessing my lift is a bit higher than what a relocation bracket can fix. Hopefully adjustable track bar will take care of it. The jeep drives perfectly straight with no abnormal tire wear.
Your front axle is probably off center to the opposite side. This is what happens with a 2 inch budget boost. Front sticks out a little more to the drivers side and rear to the passenger side. It doesn't affect handling and most people just live with it.
It is corrected by adjustable track bars, yes. Knowing the axles aren't centered would bother me every time I saw my jeep. I run MetalCloak track bars.
I'm still thinking something is bent if the relocation bracket didn't help at all. Check the bar itself to make sure its straight and check the mounts to make sure they aren't bent and don't have cracked welds. Relocation brackets put a lot of strain on the brackets the bolt to because of the increased leverage. I welded my relocation bracket on and welded on supports to the axle tube.
