Front Track Bar Help???

This may be a stupid question ... Can you use the stock front track bar hole with a 4 inch lift just for a day or so? When I installed the lift awhile back I drilled the track bar hole 3/4 of a inch over for the track bar and it has cracked. I cant fix it tonight and need to drive to work tomorrow and will repair it tomorrow night. Can I just put the track bar back in the factory hole and get to work and back? Thanks for the help!!!

If it's cracked, I wouldn't trust it. It may lead to bad day on tomorrow's commute. What you need to do is weld a 1/4" plate over the bracket and re-drill.

I pulled my stock one and you can have it for the price of shipping and a positive review on eBay
