terrabit Thanks guys! I think I have the general idea. I'll post the results as soon as I get a chance to install it.

kjeeper10 FYI
"When centering the axle be sure to measure from identical spots on either side of the frame to the inside of the tire. Be sure there aren't tire lugs or lettering, or frame brackets, etc. affecting your measurements. DON'T USE THE BODY OR FLARES as a guide, they can be off significantly side to side. You're trying to get the axle centered under the frame, not the body"

essentially, level at ride height, measure how far your tires stick out on each side. take the difference, divide by two, and that's how much longer you need to make your trackbar
Same procedure I used for my front and rear TB's. Worked like a dream!

kjeeper10 Easiest way I've found to do it.
- park on level ground
- remove factory TB
- shake jeep around, it should center itself
- adjust new TB to match the mounts but do not tighten jam nuts
- measure
Some tires have a mold line. Grab the spring perch and if you don't have a mold line, find a common point on each tire.
- make your fine adjustments if needed
- tighten jam nut(s)
- recenter steering wheel
- enjoy centered axle

Trackbar Adjustment

Howdy!

Got a new Metalcloak trackbar scheduled for delivery today. So ... how do I adjust the damn thing? Yeah I know, with a wrench. But how do I get my axle to be dead nuts centered?

Thanks!
