doclouie So what brand track bar relocation mount is the best for a 3.5" RE spring and a 1" BL? None of them really give specs on the mounts.

vonHammer Come-along and an extra pair of hands to insert the bolt as I was moving the axle made the difference. Simple 2.5 suspension, 1.25 body lift turned into that plus: new rotors & pads (since I was there), steering gearbox changeout, and track bar bracket.

Next is to get new tires (because I cut the inside of them) and wheels. This is turning into a money pit!

inglisleslie a ratchet strap will be your friend to recenter the axle and get the thru bolt back in. I was able to install the bracket in about an hour with drilling holes and adjusting ratchet strap/jack under rear axle

Jerry Bransford The track bar relocation bracket will allow the axle to center itself back up under the TJ once you unbolt the trackbar from its mount. The track bar is under a bit of tension at this time but it's not enough to make the job difficult or dangerous at all.

The front could use the same type of help but there is no equivilent track bar relocation bracket available for the front. Instead, an adjustable length track bar is used to get the front axle centered back up underneath the TJ.

And a big welcome to WF vonHammer!

Rear Track Bar Bracket Install

New to Jeeps and this forum. Lots of great info, so I thank the group in advance of this request. First mod that I did was to remove the 3" BL (bought Jeep from a teenager), and install a RC 2.5/1.25 combo kit. Added new steering damper as well. Noticed yesterdat that I have cut into the rear driver side tire with the upper coil support so I ordered a RC track bar bracket. Questions are:
1. Any tricks to the install?
2. Track bar currently under abnormal tension, i.e., any precautions removing the bolts?
3. How much encouragement do I need to apply to get it into the new bracket?
4. Do I need to do the same with the front?
