I installed an RE1610 XD trackbar today on my TJ. I have not yet installed the DPA. The trackbar and draglink LOOK to be parallel NOW. The mounting point for the new trackbar is slightly (about an inch) below the end of the drag link rod. The distance is the same at the other end between the drag link and the trackbar mount, making the effective relationship nearly parallel. Is this not what I'm after? I don't understand why it's so close now, since I've always read that you NEED a DPA with this trackbar.
Another thing I noticed is that the frame end of the trackbar is not alot different using this bar than using the RE1600. The RE1600 has a long bolt with misalignment washers, so the end of the trackbar is nearly the same distance below the stock mount. I didn't know if anyone noticed this or not.
What is the symptom of bumpsteer, in case my set-up IS off now?
