Mopar 2 inch lift kit rear track bar bracket bolt touching spring

Good day. I just had the dealership install their Mopar 2 inch lift kit and the mechanic showed me that the bolt that holds the track bar to the new bracket is touching the rear spring. Uhhhhh not good. Anyone else who has this kit installed have this issue? Thanks

I did. I believe the coil can be rotated 180° to gain clearance. If not coil wedges will work.

Yes- rotate your coil- I installed this lift myself and it is necessary to have the coils seated/indexed properly.

Also these springs are made in Mexico. The colors of the Mexican flag were on the TOP coil of mine. Check to make sure they didn't put them upside-down,

Ok, cool....thanks. I bought a rough country bracket as they had one installed on a dealer JK and it had more clearance and it was only $50..I still think I will rotate the coil just to be on the safe side. Thanks for the tip
