Track Bar options?

Hi all,<br><br>If I've read all the posts right, it sounds like the front axle moves about 1/4&quot; to the drivers side after installing the 2&quot; coil spacers.<br><br>My question is this: What options are there for either correcting this (i.e. new track bar, extensions, moving parts, etc) or for accounting for it (i.e. wheel spacers, etc)<br><br>Anyone addressed this on their truck?<br><br>Anyone care about 1/4&quot; difference between front &amp; rear axles?<br><br>Thanks for your help,<br><br>Guy

Re:Track Bar options?

I have 0 experience with track bars as I don't have one...yet however I ran across an adjustable track bar somewhere in a post. It was made to compensate for lift kits. I can't find it now but I'll keep looking.

Here's a quote from another thread on the subject.<br><br>[quote author=Foolish link=board=5;threadid=1117;start=0#8000 date=1013743479]<br>I'm new here but I'll give you the number to the best trackbar out on the market for our trucks its called the DT adjustable Trackbar and instead of utilizing a ball joint it uses a heim joint.<br><br>DT Fabrications<br>928-776-4129<br>Prescott, AZ<br><br><br>I also have something else you might want to try that is not as expensive as the DT.<br><br>www.lukeslink.com<br>[/quote]<br><br>That might be what you're lookin' for.<br><br>phox

Re:Track Bar options?

thanks for the help, guys - it's much appreciated.<br><br>I haven't settled on what to do yet, but I tried my new tires on &amp; I definitely have to lift the front end... Probably would have anyway, though.<br><br>Guy
