Rear trac bar ??

I just installed a 4 inch pro-comp lift on my yj. I can not get the bolt to line up for the trac bar extender where it mounts to the axle. Appears to be drilled wrong. I just took the trac bar off for now. I this something that is needed or should I just leave it off? This is not my daily driver but it does get drove on the road sometimes.


1990 Wrangler YJ 4.2 6 cylinder 5 speed manual trans. Stock for now.

Re: Rear trac bar ??

I wouldn't (and dont) run any trac or sway bars on my YJ, but it still has the stock suspension. A friend of mine bought the 4" Pro-Comp lift and ditched his 'bars as well and can't tell the difference. Pro-Comp makes about the stiffest springs out there, so you dont have to worry much about body-roll.

Re: Rear trac bar ??

I ditched both of mine and I have a RE 4.5" suspension(pretty flexy). Just don't try to tow anything without them.

Get rid of the bars, you don't need them.

Lose the trac bars and sway bars. You won't need them for the Pro-crap lift. Like Sycho said, they are the stiffest springs out there.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Another little bit O' advice...Loosten up the shackle/hanger bolts. If they are tight, your Jeep will ride way too stiff...Put some loctite on the bolts to keep them from backing off....That made mine ride a lot better. I don't get launched out of my seat every time I hit a speed bump now.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Rear trac bar ??

Are you saying don't tow anything without the sway bars or without the trac bars? I have removed my trac bars (front and rear) and am thinking about building a trailer. What is the reasoning behind not towing without tracbars. Thanks.

Re: Rear trac bar ??

My 95 that I had towed great without the track bars. I was pulling a 1900lb Pop-up camper. Only got to pull it for a couple of hundred miles but it pulled good anyway.
