I recently installed the Currectlync HD steering on my TJ. While the steering stabilizer was attached to the drag link I was having some binding issues with my trackbar brace at flex. A friend suggested I attach it to my tie rod... bad idea. I wasn't getting flex binding, however unbenounced to me I was binding at full turn I later came to realize.

It pretty much wrecked the OEM stabilizer and mangled the Currie bracket. I think I can salvage the bracket but the stabilizer rod is bent, old, tiny, and in need of replacement.

Good news is no real wobbles while running without a stabilizer. I am however looking for possible suggestions on which stabilizer to replace it with.

BTW, that is a heck of a spacer between the dampener eye and Currie bracket. That's probably why you're hitting the track bar.

I can't tell what is going on in that first photo but it sure doesn't look like it was assembled correctly... which leads me to believe that is likely what caused the problem in the first place. It should look like what is in the photo in All Terrain TJ's post which is right. Something else is going on, hard to say what it is at this point. :)

The main difference between his set up and mine, is I have a track bar brace. The trackbar brace literally sits on top of where of the shock end when flexed out. So I moved it to the tie rod, flexed it out and it was fine. I didn’t realize how much movement there would be while in turns. I actually felt some binding in the parking lot, took it home check it out, and that was the result.

Nope, trackbar brace. It comes with the Full Traction LA. This is how is how it was set up when I was binding on my brace.
