So I've decided to install an adjustable rear track bar (to compensate for the angled track bar relocation bracket that I need to fix the problem of the track bar mashing into the gas tank skid when I set the pinion angle of the axle to the transfer case so that I can order a custom drive shaft because I upgraded to a slip yoke eliminator after bending the main shaft of the transfer case after an ill fated trip out to Sunflower Mines).

Still have the D35 but plans are in the works for an F8.8 swap with 35's and a locker.

My question is, will just a simple Rough Country adjustable track bar be fine for both applications or should I go a bit more beefy?

If so then what is the recommendation?

I know what you mean, Jerry. I have RC lower fronts and upper rear adjustables and I already regret that decision.

Metal Cloak is also another brand to keep in mind. Some people are skeptical because it is a newer company, but it is a fraction of the price and has quality stuff. Just bought mine and received it on Tuesday

I narrowed down to Currie, 'Cloak, and JKS. I went with 'Cloak. I'm happy with my choice. The rest of my suspension is Currie, and I'm a big fan of them.

Part of it was cost. I picked up the MC track bars up from a friend, who's a dealer, for $150 each. That's a deal, compared to Currie. The other part was, I wanted to try the Duroflex joint.

Can you get me one for that price? :)
