Bracket to move rear trackbar back 1"

Hey all - did a long arm lift on my 08 JK, and moved the axle back in the process. Now the trackbar does not line up front-to-back with the axle - it sits at an angle. I swear I saw that someone made a relocation bracket to move the frame-side back 1" to match, but can't seem to find that now - anyone know who makes one of those? (again - this is not for up and down angle (I have the axle side trackbar relocation bracket for that, but something to move the frame-side back about an inch.)

Thanks!

-randy

If you can weld, it's not a huge deal to cut off the old one and weld on a new one. I got mine from ruffstuff.

I moved my rear sway bar back about 1" by using the rear factory hole as the new front hole position and drilling a new rear hole and using a self tapping screw in the new location. As you can see in the pic below the pink area was covered by the old position, and you can see the old factory location on the left side.


It brought my rear sway bar link angles from this (had AEV 3" bump stops)

To this (Rock Krawler angled 3" bump stops)

Thanks, RoughStuff - I was actually asking about the TrackBar though, not the sway bar... I think I might want to move that also, but the people who did my long arm chinzed out on the labor and just bent my sway bar links instead of moving them like they should have done to do it right. (I am *not* happy about that, but did not know any better when they did it...)

Thanks - this is what I am trying to do - I might do that - what did you get from RuffStuff though? I can't see any kind of bracket from them for this on their site? I did find someone who made their own (my son welds, so this is a very good possibility) - here's the link: Finally my build thread 3.5" RK Lift w/ 40's.. - Page 14 - JKowners.com : Jeep Wrangler JK Forum
See post 239 for the pic.

This is why i chose not to move my axle back 1".
Another option is to simply double shear of the stock bracket.

Hehee, I was half-asleep last night. Glad I can atleast help a little with the sway bar .

Here is the one that I used. Be sure to check clearances and length of your trackbar before committing to that thought!
