Budget Boost Question

This weekend I installed a 2" Pro Comp Budget Boost on my 06 Tj and I am lovin it. It was a pain to get the Rear Track bar hooked back up but I got it and I still need to do the alignment. My question is am I gonna need a new adjustable rear track bar or should everything be ok? It's just a budget boost with the pucks and shocks.

With just the 2" you should be okay.

My rear didn't move with the 2" BB. However I just put on the OME 2.5" HD kit (which actually put me over 3") and now it's way off, even with the relocation bracket...

I ran a 2" BB on my 06 with the stock track bars without any issues. When I went to a 4" lift, I needed an adjustable to center the rear axle and take the tension off the bracket as the trackbar was trying to twist in the bracket.

Hmm.. Mine is twisted so much it barely went back in.. I wonder if that's why? I didn't think of that.

Cool thanx guys! Now my next question is on the shocks do you think I should put the boot covers on?
I'm not doing any major off roading? Jus want make sure dirt and water don't destroy them.

Leave the boots off. All they do is hold dirt and water in your shocks, actually making their life shorter.

what if you threw grease around the clamps to the boots?
