    Default Track Bars???

    Hey guys, how nessesary is it to have adj/longer track bars. I got my rear one in but they're saying a month and a half for front. I cancelled the front and went ahead and got the KC slimlites. Should I return (have 30 days) the rear and maybe get something else. My rear axles is sitting about an inch further to the right and front about an inch to left. Can this cause any serious damage? oh yea I got about 3" of lift....99 TJ, 2.5, 5spd...

    you're also raising you center of gravity, so you'll roll easier. track bars are very important on that type of suspension. KC slimlights...not important at all.

    At flex it will rub. I have a front adjustable on mine. The rear on most lifts use an axle side riser for the rear track bar for 3" lift. Anything over 3", I recommend an adjustable rear.
