Front Track Bar Issue

Hey y'all. So good news first... I just completed installing my 4" lift on my 97 Sahara! Bad news... I can not get the Front Track bar back on.

The bar is connected on the drivers side. It is about 1 inch from lining up with the hole on the passenger side.

I have had a buddy(s) push on the drivers side. Still does not work. I hooked a strap from the drivers side frame to the passenger side axel. I have tried hooking the strap from the passenger side axel to the bar itself. None of these seem to do anything.

Any suggestions would be great...

Found a nice reference picture btw...

Do you have an adjustable track bar?

You're not doing it right. Quit making such an easy task so hard.

Have your buddy turn the steering wheel while you line up the holes. Easy, done.

EDIT: Please don't tell me you're using the stock track bar with 4" springs.....
