RE 1660 Trackbar

Ok havent tossed out the cash yet so i can use the search but checked over 30 pages or so and found nothing.

Anywho, I got 2 questions:

First I put on my 1660 and my hd bracket and had to drill out the bracket on the diff to 1/2 in since the bushing sleeve and bolt are 1/2 but there was nothing in the RE page that said anything about that. Is the reason why its 1/2 for the D44?? Not a big deal just wondering.

And Im running 4.5in of lift and it seems that my trackbar (since its quite thicker now) rubs a little bit on the bracket edge (due to the thickness i guess) any one else have this problem? Im running the D30 still. Is there a fix for it rubbing? Im going to run out and take a pic of where its rubbing here in a sec and will post it up here too. Only been running it for a week.

Flame on i guess for a guy whos been here since 03 and has 2 posts now...

If you sprung for the adjustable lower control arms, you can adjust that out to a point.

about the issue of your trackbar rubing the mount on the axle end (as in the pics) just remove the axle end of the trackbar, get a BIG adjustable wrench and tighten it up on the front lip of the trackbar mount(on the axle end) and apply a large amount of force to bend the bracket outward- thus ending the clearence issues. you may have to lay on your back and place your feet on the axle tube to aquire the leverage to bend the tab by pulling the backet towards you. i hope that helps you in some form or another

Just let it rub, it's only paint. You're not gonna hurt anything.
