rough country series II lift?

Did you drill the hole to relocate the bar from the steering box? I can't remember what it is called.

I think you are talking about the trac bar... drilling the hole is a bad idea.. spend the money on an adjustable trac bar.. things will be much better.

^^^x2. Thats what I did in the first place, drilled a hole. It was fine but I did not want to have any problems down the road so I ended up welding the new hole and installed and adj. track bar.

If you can afford one now, do it now. If not be very careful drilling it, and save up for an adj as soon as you can.

I just went through this decision and opted for the adjustable instead of drilling. They want you to measure and drill 3/4" towards driver side from original hole. That leaves not much metal left because the bracket turns upwards on an angle after the original hole.

It may never become a problem if you drill it and leave it like that forever. Im sure theres plenty of people that drilled. My opinion is Im not spending my money and building a suspension to just go ahead and make weak points.
Just food for thought.

I drilled the hole, but it was a bad idea.

I'm now using the original hole again, with an adjustable track bar. Getting the track bar helped my death wobble go away.

I got the track bar from JCWhitney for $94.
