    Would only hit if I slam a rock and it's pushed up into it... I know... pick good lines... but it's going to happen.

    Is this normal? Did I mount the shock too close to the tie rod? I was trying to get it as parallel as possible with a little wiggle room. Next time this happens it will be pushing into the lower shock nut for sure.

    It don't hit unless you are jacked up on a rock. With the stabilizer bolted in place, it will probably keep it from bending the tabs, since they will be in effect boxed due to the bolt tying the top and bottom together.

    If you don't drive like me it should be just fine, even if it runs now and then.

    Right.... should be fine... just more pressure on the track bar bracket... but I don't see any way around it.... shits gonna hit.

    Bubba with how flexible these things are have you seen any issues with people running hydro assist with them and them flexing under the pressure of the hydro?

    I've has zero issues with mine. Been on since March or so. And the pressure on a hydro setup is in a longitudinal direction so there really wouldn't be much flexing in that direction.

    I would flip the bolt over. Other than that I donít really see you getting around that rubbing, other than switching your clamp to a high mounting point and moving the track bar mounting location higher.

    I havenít had any issues with hydro assist. If anything itís an added bonus that it flexes and doesnít stress out the end links. Get after it.

    Iím going to try and squeeze a button head bolt in from the bottom to minimize any gouging on the tie rod.

    You can get half height nylock nuts from McMaster Carr. Iíd suggest that over sticking the bolt up from the bottom. If the nut falls off the bolt will fall out.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
