My rear axle has always been off about 3/8” to the passenger side since new. After a 2" BB, it's still about the same (but maybe more noticeable since you can see the edges on the tires better). I'd like it to be perfect, but can live with it until I have time to fab up a bracket.
I agree, something must be screwy on OP's rig if off by more than 1" to the DRIVERS side.

OP - how about a re-measurement?
|03-20-2012 07:13 PM|
Op- did you run a flat level up against the tire and measure to the same point each side?
He says it drives fine. With 1+ inch of shift. I highly doubt that jeep is going to drive "like a charm"

|basecamper||I agree with PKMCD99 loosen everything up shake it and then retighten everything all while on the ground. I disagree regarding the statement that the front will not shift. I installed an AEV 2" spacer lift my rear shifted 1/2" to the passenger side and the front shifted 1/2" to the drivers side.|

Were all the CA/TB bolts loosened during install?
I don't think the bracket is needed in the front with only 2.5" even with an additional 3/4 spacer.
I love the TF monster asj, TB. So easy to install/center.
Took us a few tries to figure it all out but ..
A turn of the adj sleeve and we can see the body shift left or right depending on which direction it's turned.

Inspect your frame side mounts for control arms and trac bar arms for bending or damage which can also cause shifting.

|pkmcd99||The front shouldnt shift at all. You also do not require any braket frame side or axle side. If you have shifted, you have either installed an un needed braket or installed an un needed adjustable trac bar. Sucks either way. Simple is good, more goodies installed isnt good. You really should not even consider extra goodies unless your 3" or higher. But every jeep is unique|

My axle was shifted 3/8 w/ 2.5 lift.
centered with Tera's front TB.
1" is crazy .... Something's wrong ??

|killerbee812||I would call or PM Teraflex. Go over your install with them and see if you did something incorrectly. I have no doubt a adjustable bar will help this problem. I only question you blaming Teraflex after you modified their design lift. IMO they can only place recomendations on what they designed and sold you. I have no issues adding spacers. I have them myself, but i know going into that mod it will cause issues. And you have to plan on issues. Keep us updated on what you find out.|

............ an adjustable trackbar is what you need and will correct the off-center axle
With only a 2-in spacer lift, mine was off-center almost an inch. There is no science to installing and adjusting the Adj-trackbar (I did it)
With the total lift you ended up with you may need: exhaust relocation brackets and a Front drive shaft. Check all "kbwwolf" posts on this subject

Unless the geometry is corrected the axle
Will be off center during wheel travel
If you are concerned about the 1"+ at ride
Height think about how far it's off during compression!!!
I would definitely call them
I don't think a shorter track bar will fix the problem, just a band aid

rear axle sticks out one inch more on driver side
I recently installed the teraflex 2.5 coil lift on my 2012 JK with the Daystar 3/4" spacers on the rear to counter the extra weight from the new bumper and spare tire. I got the Billstein 5100 shocks. I also put 33 12.50/15's on. Last night I was looking at the side of the Jeep from the front and noticed the rear axle sticks out on the drivers side farther than the passenger side. I took a tape measure and took a rough measurement and the axle sticks out about 1 1/8" more on the drivers side. I measured from the fender to the sidewall of the tire. The drivers side was about 3 1/8" and the passenger side was 2". What the heck, I thought the track bar relocation bracket that came with the lift was supposed to take care of centering the axle.
Before you answer, maybe I should tell you everything I did to my new Jeep first. I installed the Warn Elite series bumber with grill guard and Warn 8000 winch. I installed the Rock Hard rear bumper with tire carrier accompanied with a spare tire matching the rest (33 12.50/15's Duratrack on the M whatever wheels).
It drives like a charm but this axle thing bothers the heck out of me to where I don't even want to drive it until I get the axle centered. I don't mind if I have to get adjustable track bars but they should tell you if you will need them and their relocation bracket does not work. If I do need to get an adjustable track bar, should I attach it to the TF relocation bracket or remove the bracket and attach it to the stock location. Also, how do you center the axles with adjustable track bars? Is there some sort of science/math that is involved?
I appreciate any response
