|Installing a lift of any height on your Jeep JK Wrangler will cause your axles to shift from center. Up front, your axle will shift over to the driver side and in the rear, it will shift over to the passenger side. This shift occurs because your factory track bars are fixed in their length and are attached to only one side of your Jeep’s frame rails and to the axle on the opposite side. As your Jeep goes up, your axles will get pulled to the side of where your track bar is mounted on the frame.To address the problem of axle shift in the rear of your Jeep JK Wrangler, a relocation bracket can be installed if you have a small lift. However, the amount of correction it’ll offer will be fixed and depending on how much actual lift you have, your axle may still end up being short of center or in some cases, over corrected and shifted toward the opposite side. It is for this reason that I would recommend getting a heavy duty adjustable replacement track bar much like the all new TeraFlex MONSTER.The TeraFlex MONSTER adjustable rear track
is about a beefy as they come, has rubber bushing for factory like performance and come with an easy to adjust turnbuckle. With an adjustable rear track bar like this, you’ll get the benefits of improved strength while being able to accurately re-center your Jeep’s rear axle. Of course, if you have a tall 4″ lift or more, this track bar should be used in conjunction to a relocation bracket as the bracket will help to restore your suspension geometry closer to factory.
