'05+ SuperDuty aftermarket track bar
I'm swapping in a Dana 60 from an '07 SuperDuty. It came with the track bar and frame mount, but that's not going to work for my application. I plan on just making an adjustable track bar out of DOM and 2 heims and then fabbing up a frame mount, but for the axle side, I really don't want to use the factory ball joint, as I hear those wear out pretty quickly. I saw this kit from ReadyLIFT that replaces the factory ball joint with a clevis so that you can mount a heim. I don't believe they sell just the clevis alone though, and I don't feel like paying $650 for the whole kit. Does anyone know of any other solution or product sold? I know these axles are pretty popular for swaps, so this problem must have been solved already.

Plate, drill and a cutoff wheel. Mock your bracket up with card paper and copy to steel.

I’d like to use the stock mounting location on the axle, I would just like to eliminate the ball joint with something that would allow me to run a heim instead

so you are willing to make a new trac bar and are installing this diff in something that its not meant for but cant cut the old bracket off and make a new one?

cut, grind, weld and make that shit work :homer:

Yeah that’s what I’m going to have to do, just figured there was already something out there that would save me some time. Didn’t want to reinvent the wheel if I didn’t have to.

You're not reinventing the wheel, just a new trac bar mount :flipoff2:

Make sure you brace the shit out of it.
