Another newbie queastion. I have a 02 TJ with a 4" Rock Krawler kit. When I go over bumps and stuff there is a clunking sound coming form the rear axle. I think I have it narrowed down to the rear track bar. My guess is that a wrong size bolt made it in there during install (newbie). Anyone happen to know the size of the bolt at least what it is supposed to be so i can further my troubleshooting. Thanks.

When I installed an RE adjustable track bar on my ZJ the stock bolt was a 3/8" bolt and the hole at the axel end of the track bar was 5/8", RE said it came with a bushing, I couldn't find one in the kit so I bought a 5/8" bolt and drilled the bracket to match.

Someone told me that the bushing may have worn out but after just over a year that seams pretty quick. I will look at measuring the openings to see what I can do.

Pull out the bolt and measure the hole, then get a bolt to fit it. Then you can inspect the bushings too.
