I have the 1603, but the installation shouldn't be any different. The only difference between the 2 brackets is yours is for the CV (Double Candan) while mine is for the stock DS. Here is the link to my page that talks about my install, it's down towards the bottom of the page.

Rubicon Express Lift.

As for the Adj. Track bar, I can only assume that the bushing end goes into the trackbar bracket, and the heim joint goes into the frame side with the bushing. I believe that the bushing goes towards the rear. Someone help me out here.

Ron, I have the JKS adjustable rear track bar, and the bushing goes on the frame end and the Johnny Joint goes on the axle bracket. The Johnny Joint would be equivalent to the Heim joint on the RE bar. Just to make sure the RE wasn't radically different, I checked Stu Olson's site. There's a picture http://www.stu-offroad.com/round2/Round2-14.htm of the heim joint end on the (axle) bracket.

If you think about it, it makes sense. The end that moves the most has the more flexible joint.

Thanks Jerry. I can now see that the Heim joint goes on the bracket vice the frame.
