Why did you take it out? You can leave it installed for 2" spacers.

Most adjustable trackbars don't adjust short enough for use with 2" spacers so you may be SOL looking for a longer trackbar. At their shortest length, most aftermarket ones are too long.

I really dont remember why we took it out when we installed the coil spacers. ive never put in spacers before and i let my friend help me out bc he told me put one in before. the track bar is only abot 2 centimeters from linning up with the bracket.also ive been riding without it on (just on the street) just wanted to know if that will do any permanet damage

Break out a ratchet strap and pull the axle back into position.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR JEEP UNTIL YOU RECONNECT THE TRACKBAR.

The trackbar keeps the axle under your vehicle laterally. Without it, you risk the axle going one way and the vehicle another when rounding turns.
