|PHILDABEAST||Ok good, currie makes a track bar with a better bend, that's really all I needed to know. Thanks|

Currie sells a new rear track bar & bracket that uses a better bend, which will fix that part of the problem...but you'll still need to fix the axle position. If the arms don't adjust short enough, then cut some tube off them or get new arms that do adjust properly.

|PHILDABEAST||Trust me, I FULLY understand the the concept. This isn't my first jeep, I've owned and built everything from old school cherokees to toyotas, to full tube chassis buggys. I was just hoping to find an easier solution than having to build a new track bar or completely remounting my gas tank and skid plate.|

if you center the tires in the wheel well at ride height, you're pushing the tires into the rear of the fenders and the axle & track bar into the gas tank at full bump.
if you don't believe me, pull your springs out and push your axle to full bump. you'll learn stuff, I promise.

|PHILDABEAST||I've never used any RE parts before, is this a common problem with their CA'S? I have a hard time believing their r&d is that poor. I guess I'll try to figure out a different solution since I don't really care to lose any more wheelbase, if anything I'd like to move the rear axle back a little to center the tires in the wheel wells. Thanks for the help.|

|PHILDABEAST||This lift was installed by the PO. The lower CA's don't get any shorter and the uppers are out just enough to correct the pinion angle. I just noticed this while checking it full (if it would make it there) bump so I can figure out a better shock set up.|

the RE arms are pushed out too far, you need to check the axle at full bump and line the bumpstops up at full bump, and possibly buy a new rear track bar with a better bend.
This is why you check full bump

help! lj rear track bar issues
I have and 06 lj rubicon with an OME 2.5" lift w/ track bar bracket, and RE adjustable CA's. My rear track bar is hitting on the gas tank skid mount solid enough to stop up travel well before it gets to the bump stops (extended). Does anybody else have this problem?
