You can't even tell the axle isn't centered with that low of lift.

Haven't seen an aftermarket track bar that will clear and adjust to the proper length for low lift. My front Metalcloak track bar clears just fine, but is meant for a taller lift and doesn't adjust short enough.

Like unlimited said, unless you've put the axle at full bump you can't say you don't have problems. Or your not telling us something like that you have 3" of bump stops.

so did you push the axles to full bump with the springs & jounce removed, to look for problems? If not, you can't say you don't have problems....

stick with the stock track bar. most aftermarket adjustable's have major clearance issues with the diff. with only a 2" BB, it's not a can of worms you want to open.

did you get an alignment after the lift was installed?

~$60-80 for a quality brand. You can get a cheapo for $25 if you're really thrifty.

tbensor even with a press it was a pita.

MFsoftball22 Anything can be done, but how much of a PITA are you looking for. You would be asking for a crap load of work and a big headache. Keep any kids away cause there will be lots of cursing and tools getting thrown.

A press is def the best way to go and even then can still be a headache. I wouldnt recommend trying it any other way. IMO
