I just installed 3" of lift on my '98 ZJ 5.2. Until I get an adjustable trackbar, where should I drill the hole so I can center my front axle? I used the RE bracket on the rear TB. Also, do I need swaybar extensions in the front?

Thanks

Sway bar should be Ok.. It will be a little tight and you wont get much flex..

As for the swaybar.. Drill the hole about 3/4 " over from where its at.. THat should do till you get an adjustable one..

Standing in the front should I drill the hole to the left or the right. By the way, that sounds right because, I think I read someplace last year the the correct location was about 5/8" over. I just can't find where I read it. I may wait and get an adj one.

Thanks.

When you stand in front you want to drill the hole to the left of the stock hole...

Towards the drivers side..

Good luck..

Dude, just get yourself an adjustable trackbar if its within your budget. I don't know if you have already done it but myself personally I really don't like drilling holes in your lower TBar bracket or any brackets for that matter if i don't have to. Not like its going to hurt or weaken the bracket you'll probaly going to get an adj. Tbar anyways. Plus you will end up getting an alignment twice when you finally get your adjustable TBar. Understandably if its within the budget.
