That's the same bracket I have..... Looks like TF ??

You are prob over corrected (again like me) using the upper hole. Drop to the lower hole and that will bring your axle over to the right.

Pick a front adjustable (cough TF) and be done

So my lift is a teraflex and if i have a bracket)) then its a teraflex mostlikely. My main concern is rear axle, tires are out by 3/4" on a drivers side. The front axle is less so could live without if the rear is fixed. But may change it as well as an option.

Yep .... Move the rear down one hole. That's still a lot though. Where are you taking your measurements from ?

I forget... BB or coil? All TF coil kits come with a axle rear bracket for the TB.
BB kits use a frame side drop braced.

2.5 lift without bracket or TB should be around 3/8 over to the passenger side.... Using the bracket and top hole may over shift to the driver side but only 1/4 or less.

I still think... Either the measurement is wrong or something else is up with install.

Doesn't make sense ?

So, drove again back to the shop, and asked for an installer from the inside, asked him and we measured again, he was concerned about axle shifting, i asked if we could drop the bolt to the lower hole he said it will shift the car more to the right. The solution is adjustable track bars rear and front. So i ordered jks track bars to be installed in 2 weeks and to be done with it. Hope nothings else needed for the jeep. Just one small lift makes 100 other problems that cost thousands of money. Hope im gonna enjoy the jeep as much as it drained all the money in.

Lol.... He was wrong on that. Dropping a hole will pull the body back to the left. Regardless .... Can't go wrong with adjustable track bars.

Just wondering - do you have another shop of the same chain available? You might have better luck going to a different shop. I don't like hearing stuff about how it won't work going to the lower bracket hole when that's what it needed. Like they said above, adjustable will fix it, but you might be able to save a bit of coin for now.
