New trac bar.

Need one for the front. It seems jks has a monopoly on this market. Is there any other front trac bar I can look at? For A 2.5" lift btw

The nicest track bar out for the front would be a Currie. I believe with the frame side JJ. Costly at around $300, but worth it.

I actually have one for sale out of my 2004 LJ that was part of a Full Traction 6" Long Arm kit. It comes with the track bar, drop bracket, and frame support. I have the misalignment spacers but not the hardware (might be able to come up with it). Not sure if it will work for your 2.5" lift. $125.

Here you go, just ordered this because I have a 2"BB and wobbling issues, and my bushings are shot so i just got this. Lots of good reviews online if you just search up "Black diamond trac bar"

Thanks for the offer face but that won't line up with my suspension.
And black diamond? I have heard good stuff about them.

Same one I just ordered 2 days ago. Great price, and hoping it'll fix my wobble!

It won't. It'll hit the tie-rod pretty bad without lots of bumpstop extensions.

For a 2.5" lift stick with the stock track bar unless you're willing to open a big can of worms.

The older style JKS needs 2"+ of front bumpstop extension to prevent hitting the diff cover, and the new style JKS needs 2" of front bumpstop extension to prevent hitting the tie-rod. With the new style JKS, you can get by with 1.25" front bumpstop extension using a ZJ V8 tie-rod and the stock diff cover.

Here's a stock track bar from Autozone for $65. I called one of the local stores and they have one made in the U.S.A. I'll be swinging by tomorrow to pick it up.

Find me a new trac bar then. I'd rather have stock over anything. But it's not accessible. And I need a new one.

..............A stock track bar is available at www.rockauto.com, your local NAPA, AutoZone, Advance Auto or Checker.

I have on waiting for me to pick up at Autozone. If they don' have the part in stock, they can get it the next day. Talk to another parts person or the manager.

I picked up the track bar at Autozone. It cost $70, which includes tax. It only came with the nut on that goes on the driver's side but no cotter pin. I'd like to use new mounting hardware, but I'll have to hunt down the sizes on the web. Overall, it appears to be good quality, and it's made in the U.S.A. Now, how to figure how to install it.
