    Let's talk track bars

    Post by raysxj on Tue Jun 02, 2015 8:20 pm

    I'm looking into a track bar as my stocker is getting worn out, and it at its limit with my lift. I'm looking at the iron rock off-road double shear, with the beefy bracket. Looking for advice or suggestions! What do you run? I'll buy one used also (hint hint) oh yeah, it's for a 99 Cherokee xj.

    I cant remember what I had on my Grand but will go through stuff and see if I can find out. It was rugged.

    Rubicon Express, hands down. They're adjustable to help center your axle and you can get the right one for any amount of lift. Single shear but I never had any issues with my 4.5" long arm and wheeled slightly heavy at times... whistling Only once did I replace the heim joint, but you're gonna do that for any heim joint as they're exposed to the wonderful year round elements of Maine. The new joints can be had from either CSE Offroad, Morris 4X4, RuffStuff, etc

    I prefer the JKS adjustables.  Just replaced it after 8 years of running it.  Axle end bushing was still in decent shape and the Johnny joint was still tight.  I updated it as I'm going to a long arm later this month.

    thanks everyone. Jareb did you have to buy the RE mount as well as the bar? or did it work with the stock mount?
