2. Are there supposed to be spacers between the trackbar bracket and the trackbar itself? When I torque the bolt to 125 ft lbs the frame side track bar bracket is bending like crazy. Is this normal?
1. doesnt matter, whatever works best.
2. what trackbar do you have? most aftermarket trackbars have a bushing type up top, but a joint type may need a misalignment spacer. never seen that though. if it is stock you dont need anything, just the bar and the bracket.
