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.
