TF Monster Trackbar

Anyone see the issue here?

Installed this trackbar along with the TF 2.5" Coil lift yesterday.....and I cannot adjust the trackbar on the vehicle. I can turn the adjusting collar about 1/2 turn before it hits the tower that the upper control arm bolts to.

Ugh.

Guess I need to remove the arm and shift the collar over one way or another to clear the axle tower. This will leave more threads on one side than the other.


Anyone else run into this or am I just the lucky one?!?!?

Can you trim the bolt heads or turn the collars around?

Mine splits the tower but can't you loosen the pinch clamps up so they spin? I have equal threads showing

TF Monster Trackbar

A suggestion, remove the bolts, use some stout snap ring pliers or battery terminal spreaders and slide the clamps off both sides of the collar. Make your adjustments, the reinstall the clamps and bolts, tighten to spec, done.

Trackbar all adjusted. Guess missing a really basic thing happens where you are trying to work when tired. Clamps slide right off the adjusting collar when loosened enough.
