CMLitzenberg So I got it in. Took taking the bracket off, putting the bolts through then clamping and pulling the brackets into place with the bolts. Next question... what do you guys think the chances are that this is going to cause the dreaded "death wobble". I do not know nor experienced the wobble but know its often caused by trac bars... how often are they the rear trac bar. Is mine, which is obviously wedged in there pretty good, going to wear it self out quick? My guess is that it probally will, unfortunatly

MOz My tailpipe had the same issues when I did mine. I simply relocated the hanger bracket down a couple of inches and bent the pipe into place.

03rubi I think I would take the Jeep to the local exhaust shop for a modification. Shouldn't be too expensive.

Sb5551 CM, those metal brake line brackets will come off. It is kind of a pain, but I used a flat head screw driver and pliers to rip the brackets off. Just be carefull.

CMLitzenberg well just by looking at yours... it looks like mine would be in the same position as yours... although yours looks "new" where mine is still the stock one. Biggest change... my exhaust runs ABOVE the trac bar not below like yours.... PS did your brake lines have a swedged bracket on it that mounted to your old upper control arms... mine did. And because its swedged on i can't get it off so not sure what do to with the big hunk of metal! just leave it i guess!
PSS What year is your Jeep? You have to do any corrosion control on the frame? It looks great. I was thinking about getting mine all grinded down and repainted.

4Jeepn so you have somthing that sort of looks like this.. less the long arm... does the trac bar need to be higher or lower to not contact the pipe?

CMLitzenberg Its on the agenda for tomorrow. I am working out of a buddy's garage (he's got more tools that I) But will do. if it helps. The rear trac bar makes a sight angle (maybe 40 degrees for 6 inches or so) right out of the moutin bracket in the rear pass side... directly inboard of the shock absorber. The exhaust routing goes above this. Just now that the other side (drivers mount at the axile). is higher it puts the angle out of whack.

Always gotta be something. Need Advice

So I started installing my RE Superflex kit and got all the way to the end... well sorta. Has any one installed this themselves? I have a 2000 TJ Sport... problem came when I went to reconnect my rear trac bar... (you have to disconnect it to install a bracket.) Problem I am having now is the angle causes it hit my exhaust. I have a Borla aftermarket exhaust... I couldn't imagine any other routing but don't honestly know how the stock exhaust routes... not to mention its insanly hard to even get the bar close to the mounting bracket. Any advice? in put? past experience?... pretty much all is welcome. Thanks. Plus... has anyone installed an Advanced Adapter SYE and rear driveshaft? How difficult is this really?
