Not Invented Here seems to be replacing a stock track bar. He mentions sitting at stock height.I thought you were supposed to have a load on the suspension when you replace a track bar so it's adjusted to be centered at ride height? Asking because I have a new rear JKS track bar waiting to be installed.
that totally DID NOT occur to me and seems like an obvious strategy now. Good lookin' out.disconnect the track bar
I've used those and they work like a charm.I got this one http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&toolid=10001&campid=5337789113&icep_item=112478599655. Keep in mind the brackets vary by model year. 97-02 Wranglers have a different bracket design.
Similar ones can also be found on Amazon, but that one from ebay was the cheapest one I came across back when I looked.
Thanks, the lift is an OME kit from Quadratec with H/D springs front and rear, Nitrocharger shocks, OME steering stabilizer, rear track bar relocation bracket and I ordered the 10mm spring spacers separate. I bought this TJ last fall and it had BB spacers on it 2" front and 1 3/4" rear but the springs were shot and had sagged 1 1/2" in the front.Looks good!
I see the extra skid for the automatic transmission under there. Did you have any vibrations? How did you resolve them? What we're all the components that went into your lift?
I have a 2004 Sport Auto 4.0 with 2" BB and I spaced the skids and clearances the front drive shaft. I still have slight vibes and I'm about ready to resolve them. I figure the $12 in washers has had a good ROI since 2007 when I installed them.
What???Installed my grab bars and put my new purple steering wheel cover on. I just put it over the old one as I like how thick it is. LOL There was nothing wrong with the old one, just wasn't purple enough for me. View attachment 140297

Thanks for the info, it's very helpful. I'm curious to hear how the test drive goes.Thanks, the lift is an OME kit from Quadratec with H/D springs front and rear, Nitrocharger shocks, OME steering stabilizer, rear track bar relocation bracket and I ordered the 10mm spring spacers separate. I bought this TJ last fall and it had BB spacers on it 2" front and 1 3/4" rear but the springs were shot and had sagged 1 1/2" in the front.
I took a lot of measurements before I started and pretty much ended up 1 3/4" taller all around from where I started. I did the front first a few days ago and put a hundred or so miles on it with no more vibration than it had but it does have some. I'm sure it doesn't help that the tires are pretty worn.
It was pouring rain when we finished the rear end so I have not driven it yet, I'll try it out after work today and see what I have. I had a TJ before that had 2" spacers and the TC had been lowered with 1" x 1" square stock and I drove it that way for twelve years.
I think new motor mounts may be a better way to go but I would have to buy them, I can lower the TC for free. If it is no worse than before I may wait till I buy new tires. I want to go 32s but a local Walmart has 31 BFG AT TKOs on close out for $89 each.
