Currie lift: rear trackbar question

I'm getting ready to order the Currie kit soon. Very soon.

My question is why would I want an adjustable rear track bar?

I see the kit comes with the relocation bracket...

I think I read something about you need the relocation bracket because the track bar hits something when you lift the jeep. I guess you could order the kit without the adjustable track bar and see if the rear is centered. If it is then I would think you would be good.

Someone else should chime in.

That track bar is superior to stock in every way. The bends maximize clearance with the diff and gas tank skid and the ends can handle the misalignment with no issues. With that level of a suspension, do not skimp and use the factory track bar.

Ok.

Here's another question. Since I already have the Skyjacker TC drop, would it be a bad thing to go ahead and install the lift, including rear track bar, and keep the TC drop UNTIL I have the funds for the SYE?

I ask because things are adding up quickly. I saw in the online instructions for the Currie lift I need the rear shock relocator. Then there is an angle finder I'm going to need..

Good stuff isn't cheap, as you've seen. And addressing the drivetrain and suspension in a complete manner that addresses all issues isn't cheap, either. You'll be OK waiting but you could just hold off on installing until you have everything in your garage. Nobody is saying that you have to install what you have right now.

Good stuff isn't cheap? You can say that again...

This damned forum. If I never started reading here, I would have been happy switching my skyjacker lift with a Pro-Comp...

Well, you wouldn't have good stuff then.

If you think this forum is 'expensive', you shouldn't venture out of it. This is the cheapest of all the Jeep forums I'm familiar with.

I have the currie lift as you can see what I have in my signature. I opted to save the money and stick with the stock trackbar, and imped I do understand that the currie tb is so much better with johnny joints cant beat them! But I just bought the rubicon express rear trackbar bracket it has a bend in it to allow the trackbar no not bind and to be used with the pinion angle what it is. The currie trackbar that comes with the kit doesn't have the bend and I still have that one its on the list to sell worth like 85 so that will help a little with the price tag and that bracket is to be used with their trackbar I believe but my stock trackbar hasn't have issues since I installed the lift. As for the rear shock relocators, I just cut some of my spring perches out for the tube of the shock to fit properly with the pinion angle. I mounted them the right way not upside down not saying theres anything wrong with that. Id strongly suggest the rancho rs9000xl's because there made in usa, limited lifetime warranty, and 9 way adjustable so if you don't like it you can adjust it vs buying and not liking the shock and being stuck with it. Good luck man I know its a lot to spend but youll love the antirock don't have to worry about disconnecting or anything and it rides really nice I love the suspension. For your sye and ds id recommend advance adapters made in usa and tom woods also made in usa. Can you tell I like American made products? lol good luck if you have any questions just pm me. Joey.
