Steering parts??

Hey guys. Forgive my ignorance of mechanical anatomy but I need to know a little about this rubber grease holder thingie in part of the steering. It has split and even I know it needs replaced.
Funny that I just posted yesterday about my mechanical ability doubling in a few weeks after buying this TJ. That just tells you where I'm at. Sad I know but ever improving.
97 Sport 4.0 4" procomp lift.
Thanks in advance!!

That's the top end of your track bar. Here is a picture of the front end of a tj which should show you all the parts you need to know. Good luck.

Wow thanks!! You must be a wiz at the computer too!! Do I have to replace the whole thing or can I buy parts for the end of the track bar?

That says it is for a tie rod, but I think they are the same. Mine is no longer stock, so maybe someone with a stock setup can confirm this.

With the style and design of the "STOCK" TJ trackbar you will have to replace the whole thing...

So you have two chocies buy a factory replace ment from local auto parts store Autozone, Oreillys, ect... Or buy a aftermarket one from a company like JKS or ProComp ect the aftetmarket one will be adjustable so it will work better with your 4" lift you say you already have and the aftermarket one will come with a hemi joint so it wont ever blow out again...

Funny thing is that I thought I was getting an ok deal on this Jeep, turns out if it can be relaced, it needs to be replaces. "JUST EMPTY EVERY POCKET"
I am having a good time learning about all this stuff though.

Thanks for all the help guys. If you have anymore ideas or suggestions, by all means thow 'em out there.

Thanks again!!

Good news guys. On my way home I stopped at a friend's house and he actually had a new track bar (20kmiles) in his shed. $20 later it was mine!! I know what I'm doing this afternoon.

Got it on. Had to go but a different bolt for the passenger side though. Stripped the hex key head a little getting it out so now it's just a regular grade 8. After the install I took it for a ride and it seemed to be fine. Thanks for the help all.
