JKS disconnect/trackbar bracket issue

I bought a set of JKS quicker disconnects (part #2001) I went to install them today and on the right side i got a bracket that relocates the track bar and steering stablizer. It blocks the lower part of the disconnect, so you cant disconnect it. so i didnt install them, had to leave my old ones in. see pic for problem. anyone ever have this problem or any ideas what i can do? thanks

the problem is that skycrapper track bar/stabilizer bracket.

get a better track bar that uses the stock mount (Currie TJS/TJJ), lose the drop pitman arm (go to stock pitman arm), put the stabilizer where it's supposed to be, and you'll be a whole lot better off.

so that track bar is made to be used with that bracket? I think im running a stock pitman arm, but not positive. heres a couple more pics

and yes, that monstrosity of a front track bar bracket and track bar need to go in the trash.

Thanks... the lift that was in the jeep when i got it was all pieced together and was done all wrong, everything was outta whack. im slowly getting where it needs to be and where i want it. I installed those savvy uca and got the currie lowers, it had three different sets of control arms when i got it including stock rear uppers....its a work in progress but having a blast doing it....
