Why do some companies make adjustable rear trackbars if they still require a trackbar bracket? I'd like an adjustable rear trackbar that doesn't need a bracket. The bracket I have constantly comes loose, no matter whether I use locktight, locking washers, larger bolts and threading all the holes. I prefer not to have a bracket because it causes more issues than it should.

Can you tack weld it on?

If you use upper rear adjustable control arms, to dial in your pinion angle, I believe you HAVE to use a bracket, one that is angled some so it keeps the trackbar from burying itself in the top left corner of the gas tank.

This may not be applicable to all lifts, but it did apply to my RE 3.5 SF lift + 1.25" JKS Body lift.

Prior to dialing in my pinion angle, I still had to use a bracket - one that actually could be used instead of the expense of an adj rear trackbar.

I actually tried an adj rear trackbar at one point in time, and the dang thing wouldn't adjust short enough, so I sold it.

There's also the issue of the trackbar making contact with the top of the stock mount on the axle with a tall lift. I have a 3" lift and I had this issue with a JKS trackbar. All of the trackbar brackets that I have seen are open on the top unlike the stock mount which has a boxed or enclosed top.
