I have a 06 rubi with superlift 4 inch lift and 33 inch procomps. I have a heavy rear tire carrier, a sub box and hard top that is causing me alot of sag. I also have a Nth Tummy tuck sitting in my spare room along with some spring relocators. I bought the spring re-locators to see if I could get some of the sag out the rear and if it was to high just bb the front. When going to install the spring re-locators i was having some problems with the track bar not allowing for enough drop in the left side to put the spring back in. I could have compressed the spring but wasn't sure if it would mess with my angles so I took it off. I am debating on what i should do???. Adjustable track-bar, just put it on, go in debt for the long arm lift (is the ride that much better?) I plan to later on go with a long arm from nth but at the moment poor... Anyone have a idea how I can get it level and use the rear spring re-locators, so i can put my tummy tuck on. I don't want to put the tummy tuck on due to having to get the length for my new Double Car drive shaft..

Any input would really help I am kind of a newbie and there aren't Many jeep people around my parts.

Thanks
Shawn

Since you have the spring relocater from Nth, I would just install it. Since you are having problems reinstalling the spring, I would unbolt the shock at the axle side and disconnect the rear sway bar link, that will give you more than enough room to play. If your trackbar is binding, you can always upgrade to the JKS adjustable or one of the other brands. What trackbar do you have now?

I would first work with what you have before throwing 2k in on a long arm kit. They ride great and I want one but it is hard to justify the cost when I only wheel once every 2 months.




Welcome to the forum, where are you from?

I disconnected the sway bar when I isntalled my springs as it makes life much easier. Afterwards I just reinstalled the swaybar as it was close enough to run with 2.5" springs.

I disconnected the sway bar and springs. The trackbar is a oem product I assume due to super lift making a extension on the axel, I bought the Rubi used with the lift on it so not sure but from my research superlift doesn't add a trackbar in it's product list. Anyways it seemed like the trackbar was binding when it was going that far down not allowing the the left side to droop enough to get the spring in with out a compressor. Also since I would be moving the whole spring perch down would I need more or less bump stop. It has procomp e3000 that ride like a tank.. Thanks alot I have been trying to figure out what to do for awhile now..

What I would do is to order a real trackbar that is adjustable such as http://store.jksmfg.com/merchant2/m..._Code=JKS01&Category_Code=Trackbar_Components The JKS trackbar would also come with a CV driveshaft shifter that sets the mount (bolt on) out farther so it will not bind as easily.

No, the Nth spring relocator moves the mount itself. You only need to adjust the bumpstop if you change spring height. Their install instructions _> http://www.aev-conversions.com/pdf/isheets/AEV-Nth_TJ_Rear_Spring_Relocator_Kit_Instructions.pdf


If you have any jeep questions, feel free to ask. :)

What I would do is call David @Northridge4x4, 360-340-0202 (he is in Washington State) explain what you have on the rig and he can tell you what you need to make it right. He is the type of man that will pass along business if someone has it cheaper than him.
