track bar advice

hi guys, so i have a 4" lift with a stock trackbar. in the lift kit instructions it tells me to drill a hole X amount over and re-install, so i did. however now i am looking to buy an adjustable track bar. my question is do i buy a bar for 0-2 inches of lift (considering i have relocated the hole) or one for 2-4 inches of lift (considering this is the lift i have) also if anyone has a brand they trust, feel free to suggest it. currently im thinking of a superlift track bar. thank you guys for your time

Buy an Adj. Front Trackbar.
I would recommend either. Teraflex, Currie or Rubicon Express

Do not do the drill mod, do it right with an adj. trackbar

Can you use the original hole? if so, the 2-4 " adj trackbar.New hole would be 0-2 inch.

See if you can use the original hole and go with one for a 4" kit. Come to think of it, a buddy of mine has one off of his Rubi that is practically brand new . . . I think he had it on there for maybe two months before deciding to swap out his axles. It's an adjustable ProComp from their new 4" kit. I think he was asking for like 75 bucks obo plus shipping. Let me know if you'd be interested and I'll send you his contact info.

thanks everyone. well the problem is the first relocation hole i drilled was poorly measured so i had to weld a steel plate over the whole bracket and re-drill the hole. so using the original hole is out of the question unfortunately :l
Schmo- thats sounds amazing and thanks but unfortunately it looks like i will need a 0-2" adj. bar? thank you though.
