What's the point?
 
So I have the lift installed in the rear of my TJ and just let it down off the jackstands. I'm checking it out and the passenger side tire is sticking out an inch further than the driver side. So what is the point of the track bar relocation bracket if it's not going to be centered?

You have to adjust it. Disconnect the track bar and let your TJ sit on its own. Adjust track bar and reconnect. Done.

So the track bar stays parallel to the axle, and doesn't shift as much when the suspension articulates.

There are models of rear track bar relocation brackets available from some companies that are specifically designed to center the axle for certain specific lift heights. They can be found for 2" lifts, 3" lifts, 4" lifts, etc. so their job is to properly position the driver's side of the track bar so as to push the axle towards the passenger side the correct amount.

Generic one-relocation-bracket-fits-all-suspension-lift-heights are not effective at recentering the rear axle for all possible suspension lift heights.

Don't bother trying to find such brackets for the front axle, they don't make them... or at least the few that have been sold create other problems & aren't a good thing to install.

You can get away with the right model relocation bracket for the rear but for the front, you really need to pony up for an adjustable length track bar to get the axle properly centered.

I'm just saying my kit came with the bracket for the rear I figured it would make it right , guess I'll be buying adjustables .I had planned to buy one for the front I just figured the back would be alright with the supplied bracket.
