Is this supposed to have play?

Right below my steering stabilizer that bar moves up and down a bit with the jeep being on the ground not lifted.. Is this normal I believe this is he track bar I'll attach a picture. Thanks Jared-

Yes. Your tie rod will move based on what is necessary for your suspension whilst driving. Completely normal. If your track bar is moving then no that is not normal.

Here's a pic to help you identify suspension components under your jeep.

I remember the first time I found out that the rod moved. I was under there adjusting the drag link and it completely moved north while I was pushing on the link. I sat there for a second under the jeep thinking..."ok what did I just break?"
