Re: Axle off Center??

it does this simply because of the design... the track bar does this naturally as the distance between the body and the axle increases... if you were to lower it it would poke the axle out the other side. This can be remedied with an adjustable track bar.

I had the same problem when I lifted my jeep, Omelet recommended I get an adjustable track bar from rusty's off road. I got it and installed it and it did the job perfectly, has a nice grease fitting as well
