Rear track bar relocation bracket

I just installed a 4" lift that included a relocation bracket for the rear track bar. It was really difficult to get the bolts any kind of tight due to the location of them. Now, it seems that this is the only thing coming loose from the install and the rear end is getting sloppy. The way I see it I have two options:

1. Get the bracket welded to the frame and forget the need for bolts (approx $50)

2. Buy an adjustable rear track track bar ($160) and I would have to install

Any opinions?

Your on the right track bud. Either way you posted is good fixes to the issue.

1) fixes it...it wont move.

2) Fixes it...and gives you the ability to correctly center your axle...even the ability to recenter it after your springs sag after they get worn in, you you choose to go with a slightly larger or smaller spring later on down the road.

Me...I vote option two.


Also...I will add a little poll to the thread for you.

I would go with an adjustable track bar. Makes more sense in the long run.
