Hereís the axle side. Pretty beefy.

Who makes that setup? Iím having a hard time figuring out how that attaches.

I have the Synergy Track Bar bracket. I didn’t do the sector shaft bracket. I also went with Synergy’s Grade 9 bolt kit but I don’t recall whether the bracket came with a bolt but the larger bolts combined with the bracket (and of course, proper torque) will prevent the hole from augering out.

Exactly.
It's a loose or improperly sized bolt which does the ovaling. If the track bar (regardless of kind) is bolted so it can't move... then it CAN'T oval. It's the bolt moving sideways in the hole which does it.

I just read the "sticky" on 9/16" Grade 8 (in my case, Grade 9) bolts that Planman wrote. He is absolutely correct that if properly maintained, the bolts should be ok but for me, I'd rather use a Grade 9 bolt that is the same size as the hole and be able to torque it down more to not have to worry about checking torque constantly (or at least as much). I will always check suspension and steering with a torque wrench before I go off road but I also don't worry about it on a multi-day wheeling trip.
