Garrwing84 So im looking at these..

Teraflex 1954202 - TeraFlex Rear Trackbar Bracket for 07-12 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK with 2-3" Lift - Quadratec

Teraflex 1954777 - TeraFlex Rear Trackbar Bracket for 07-12 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK with 2-6" Lift - Quadratec

Is the only difference that one of them is more adjustable then the other? So I should be ok with the less expensive one?

The Tera 2.5 kit I installed comes with a rear TB relo bracket.
Can be bought separately for a lot less then buying an adjustable TB to center the axles. Try that
Yea I didnt think it should shift so much.. now to convince my friend to get it back on his lift...he thinks just having it every bolt loose but still in the socket sitting over night should have been enough...

I'll definitely check out that rear TB relocation bracket. Thanks!

I am not familar with the Rubicon Express 2" BB kit but I would think it would have everything needed.

Rear end 2" to the right? Pics please.

I installed a 2" BB a few months back and my rear didn't shift to the right 2".
We did loosen everything when installing them..Though we did have the track bar back on before lowering it...it wasnt fully torqued down...but thats probably my problem. I'll get some pics but im not sure you could see a big difference.

It helps to wiggle and push the jeep around side to side before torque bolts down to assist in the settle in reset process.
Ok well thats one thing I havent tried yet. Just need to get a lift now... I assume I wont need a track bar braket or new sway bar links then... I think I'll still need extended brake lines though..as we cut the stock bracket and put a long slim piece of metal in its place and then bolted the brake line to that.

Newb Question about lift/Track Bars.

Hey guys and gals!

Ok, so I finally got a Rubicon Express 2" BB. It came with new shocks, front and rear bumpt stops and front and rear coil spacers. Also I have the 15" MB wheels TKO with 33" Goodyear Duratracs.
My friend and I installed the BB at his work... Everything seems really tight. The rear end is now two inches to the right. :-/ And also when lowering the Jeep off the lift the front sway bar links started going the wrong way. We had to push them back to the right position before completely lowering it.

So I'm guessing I need new front and rear sway links.. but do I need a whole new adjustable front and rear sway bar kits or do you think just the sway bar links would be good enough?

Also I was wondering about the rear track bar. From doing some searches on here Im guessing I need a rear track bar bracket and not a whole new track bar to get it centered? Would any rear track bar bracket work with the stock track bar or aftermarket track bar? Would I need a front track bar too?

Sadly im driving as is as Ive nothing else..I feel like I'm hurting her

Thanks for any help!
