adjustable front track bar if you want your front axle centered.

What about the rear track bar? I see many kits come with a new/adjustable front bar but doesn't the rear need centering too to keep the angle of thrust centered with the frame?

I have the TF lift and it comes with a bracket for rear axle. Not sure about your kit. Even with my bracket I am still getting a track bar for the rear in the future. I have Synergy on the front and it is a quality product. Also adjustable after installed, makes a big difference in getting everything right

Depending on how "high" the 2.5" gets you, exhuast spacer. The grade 8 bolt upgrade is a must do upgrade.

OK, so i understand getting the proper fitting bolts and the exhaust spacer. What about brake lines? or relocation brackets for the brake lines?
as for the adjustable trackbar, why would it not be centered after the lift with orig equipment?

The rear trackbar bracket that is included should get the rear pretty close. The front however doesn't get a bracket and the lift can/will shift the front axle. An adjustable front trackbar allows the adjustment to take care of that.

Also, I'm not a fan of the washers for caster adjustment. I'm not an anti RE guy, but if I was to put in an RE lift, I would probably add the Rancho drop brackets instead of using the washers.

I see. Thanks for that.

What about brake line extensions or relocation brackets?

Search Northridge4x4 bolt kit on Google. Not sure about brake lines. What year is your Jeep? Maybe someone with the RE kit will know.

Front brake lines are probably OK once you pry them out of the stupid factory bracket. Channel locks (yes two pair) are you friends. The rears probably need new lines of a drop bracket. YMMV
