View Full Version : JKS rear track issue

10-27-2005, 01:00 PM
I just noticed that my rear track bar is rubbing on the top bolt of pumkin. Is a JKS soild at that point? And has anybody had that problem- if so is there a way to keep it from hitting when the axle is compressed? I have RE 3.5 springs with 2"BB in the rear and 2" bumpstops and still hit. Maybe I should slow down over those bumps a bit :smt115

how far are your arms adjusted out? i'm running the same lift and have no issues like that.

They are not extended real far. I have maybe 1 inch of clearance from the front of the rear tire to the body. The axle is actually not even centered- it is pushed forward a bit so that when it flexes it will have more room to the rear. I will have to get back under there and check the track bar again. It needs adjusted to move the axle to the right a hair.
JKS says .125 DOM tubing so its not solid and i need to figure it out before it creates a weak point.

It's a common problem. Weld on a new mount, or try shaving the head of that bolt a lil' bit.
