|mikez||I will look into that thank you|

you need to pull the springs and push the axle to full bump. you'll need to make sure the bumpstops align properly (adjustable control arms), and that no other interferences are present.

Keep in mind Savvy has an upgraded version of the Currie steering with an "unbendable" tie rod if you're interested. It's a bit more, but you won't have to worry about bending your tie rod again.
Just know that if you do go with their upgraded version, you've now moved the weak link elsewhere.

|mikez||ok well JJ it is then! looks like i will be getting curri steering too|

I'd recommend the 9102TJJ from Currie; it uses larger bolts on both ends of the trac bar.
And I'd be surprised if the tereflex is "beefier" than the TJJ or TJS; it's probably just deceiving in the pictures. Trust me, everyone here isn't recommending the trac bars from Currie without a good reason for doing so.

|mikez||so stock bump stops spaced down?|
|06-18-2012 12:58 PM|
|mikez||It seems that Curri 9120TJS is the way to go. I ran accrost the teraflex though and it looks way beefier then Curri at the spot where i broke mine.|

|Imped||The only similarity between the JKS and Currie bars are the Currie JJ at the frame end, that's it. If they were so similar, I wouldn't have swapped out a JKS for a Currie. Get the Currie, swap in a stock pitman arm, and call it a day.|

I have the daystar bump stops and they are really firm. The tie to is bent from earlier in the weekend.
What happened is I was just getting spotted threw a tougher section and it just broke. Not sure which part but my spotter noticed it

|sevenservices||what happened? just curious...|

the Currie is slightly offset forward to clear more diff covers but pretty much the same as the JKS
Can't go wrong with either but many people like the Currie. I got a JKS cheap from Mudflaps.com is the only reason i got the JKS and didn't go currie

|4Jeepn||Also appears to have a drop pitman arm..shouldn't need that, but not sure what other mods this one has.|
|06-18-2012 08:49 AM|
|jrussblues||I think the axle looks bent because of the tie rod being bent, like an optical illusion.|
|06-18-2012 08:44 AM|
There are two track bars to consider...Currie TJS or TJJ model, or the JKS. You will need 2" front bumpstop extensions to prevent these track bars from hitting your diff cover and tie-rod. For this application, I'd suggest the Currie TJJ, and weld a 1/8" or 3/16" plate to the axle side mount to reinforce it. Make sure to pull the springs and push the axle to full bump to check clearance issues so this doesn't happen again....
also ditch that drop pitman arm, thats not helping anything at all.

|liredneck||They both look bent to me|
|06-18-2012 01:11 AM|
|brendend||Tie rod yes can't axle can't tell|
|06-18-2012 01:00 AM|
|darkproximity||maybe not the axle tube but the tie rod, which could very well be like that stock, idk|
|06-18-2012 12:59 AM|
|darkproximity||is it just me or does the tie rod and passenger side axle tubing look bent?|
|06-18-2012 12:52 AM|
|GoldenSahara00||Could be wrong but I believe the currie has a beefier end on each side. I'm sure it would be easy information to fine but I don't know offhand the sized.|

oh yay track bars!
Ok i was out wheeling today and broke my track bar
stuff breaks oh well but i would rather not have that issue again.
I have a rubicon express heavy duty track bar currently and its broke. people are telling me to get curry or JKS. I cant see much of a difference in the spot mine broke? Do all track bars have this issue? all the bushing sides look the same.
