Track bar relocation brackets

Hi,

I am about to install some Currie Adjustable front and rear trac bars on the Jeep and have a couple questions. Do I need to install the trac bar relocation brackets? They are adjustable I realize but I also have a 4" lift. I have read some places yes and read some places no. I am looking for some advice from someone who has dealt with this already. Please help

If you change the front track bar bracket mount you will have to change the drag link or suffer bump steer. The track bar and the drag link should be at the same angle.

Unless you are doing a full steering correction in front with a new flipped drag link, you wont put a bracket on the front.

In the rear it is nice to get the roll center correction from the raised bracket. This allows for a better handling on the street. And it can be added without any further correction needed.

Thanks for the input folks. Looks like I will be doing the drag link flip while I'm at it. Control arms, front and rear trac bars, trac bar relocation brackets, drag link flip, JJ housing replacements and shocks.

At 4" or above, I think that's a good choice. There are plenty that don't do it, but if you are built for decent flex, you already have 3" front bump stops, so why not?

This is a great draglink and is a "no-drill" design.

Thanks!! I have already got one to install. I went with the Synergy Drag Link. A little bit of drilling, not a big deal.

Sorry, DS= drive shaft. With much over a 3 inch lift the funky front CV joint at the transfer case will take a dump.

You know I haven't put much thought into it yet. I knew that I would be replacing them eventually and its probably just as good a time as any. I know there are a lot of companies out there and have not looked into them yet. What are folks using out there for aftermarket driveshafts?
