I'm a bit upset that Teraflex in their description of their rear adjustable trackbar that it's required for 2.5" lifts or greater, but yet don't mention that when purchasing their 2.5" lift "KIT" which is supposedly everything you need.

I had no issue with the back axle, the front however shift to the left 3/8". Visually you can tell its off center however it did not change driving characteristics. Eventually I will add an adjustable track bar up front.

But I doubt a rear adjustable would be needed unless its just a visually annoying sight to someone. I'll be installing mine next Saturday an report back on issues an other things then
Good post Cam.

The bracket should have you close enough
3/8's is typical front and rear for shift. The rear bracket is supplied to raise the rear roll center and help handling. Raising/lowering the track bar prevents the axle from shifting as much.

I never used one in either of my Jeeps. The Driver's side I needed to hold the shaft, but the passenger side just tightened right up.

Ride is great but any of you guys know how I should recenter the axle? Because on the front it leans out the passenger side a bit more and my driver side shock is kinda rubbing against the shock Frame

The only way to do it is with an adjustable track bar. You're front shouldn't be off that much with this lift. Measure from the shock housing to the outer edge of your tire. Post your results.

Ok so I evened out the axle with the front monster track bar to get the steering wheel perfect you need to have a friend eye the steering wheel til it's straightened out from you adjusting the trackbar then you tighten it back up then go around the block of your neighborhood to see where exactly the steering wheel is when you drive straight then park again and have said friend eyeball it again and it should be good for having the front axle centered afterwards schedule a professional alignment

Oh to save you guys some money do the pro alignment when you have adjustable control arms AND trackbar otherwise they are just only just re centering the steering wheel and taking your money

So I installed the lift but I wanna save up to buy the tires and wheels together and mounted and balanced I don't have any wheel spacers and this is the result on rear the rear swaybar link can hit the brake assembly but I was wondering since I don't plan on hitting the trail anytime soon if I can wait on my wheels and tires

Id worry more about hitting the wheel driving over potholes/bumps. That looks really close ??

It is really close but I never hit the wheel but you can kinda see where the brake assembly makes contact with the swaybar link

The cat back is bolt on, I always use a sawzall to cut the old stuff off in pieces...it's just way easier than fighting with it. As for the mini cat, sawzall to get it off and took it to a local muffler shop to get it welded back in. You have to have someone who is really good at welding exhaust to get in the nooks and cranny's and seal everything up. If you cut, cut it at the straight points, teraflex has a great 7 part long arm install video that showed the cut points for a 10'

A 4" grinder with a slightly worn blade about 3" will fit in the pocket and cut shaft, then finish by cutting thru bottom washer in a pie cut, then you can pop it up and out with a screwdriver and hammer. Took me five minutes each, cheers!

Pull boot down, tape a channel locks jaws and clamp onto that retainer they have at top of piston shaft... Screw the Allen wrench, throw it away!
