Re: Any last minute ideas on trackbar(s)?
Your plan sounds "mostly" good to me. Get that wrench and take off the rear. It is not needed. They can be pretty hard to get out of there, those bolts take a lot of road crap, and ofter get pretty stuck, use a lot of PB blaster, and you may need to heat the bolt once or twice to get it loosed up. One good trick is to heat the nut so it gets really hot. Then hit it hard with the PB. The nut will cool very fast and as it does it will draw in the PB, and really get it into the theards.
I would NOT take off the front track bar. It is possible but your jeep gets pretty unfriendly on the road. It will wander a lot. And if you spend time on secondary roads that are paved, but not well maintained, then you jeep will be all over the place. The front holds the steering tight, But get rid of the back, and don't think a thing of it.
