    You want the trac bar and drag link as close as possible to the same angle to prevent DW.

    What type of Jeep? What Lift? Any pics?

    There's a lot of things that can cuase DW, the more info we have of your set up, the better we can try and answer/help.

    It's your trackbar angle in relation to your drag link
