    Front prorock 60 clearance issue

    Hey guys,

    So i recently came to the discovery that my frame side track bar bracket is hitting the front corner of the driver side coil bracket on my pr60. And actually bent the back half of the track bar bracket. I cant get a picture right now but hopefully you can imagine what im talking about. I'm assuming I can correct this by just moving the axle back a little bit? Or have others encountered this and had to trim anything? Thanks as always.

    Front prorock 60 clearance issue

    My Fusion d60 had the same problem, I just trimmed the corner off of the spring perch. 3” bump stops on mine. Seems like most running 4” bumps might not have that problem.

    I guess you could adjust it out via track bar and/or control arms. Mine barely touched on the corner and I had everything centered and set so I just cut the corner off. Maybe like 1/4 inch or less.

    Ok cool thanks for the response. I figured i prolly have to cut it. I had 2 pucks in, just put a 3rd in to see if it would help and it may have. Only seems to happen if im going a little to fast and hit a bump.

    Ok cool thanks for the response. I had 2 pucks in and just put a 3rd in before my trip this past weekend. Seemed to help a little maybe but will still have to trim i think.

    Learn something new every day. Not sure how I missed it. It just barely scraped it enough to where I could feel the back side of the bracket had been worn away.

    Check the passenger side track bar to frame also. Two pucks is pretty short. Might have been hitting there too. I also found out the hard way that not all aftermarket track bars clear the sector shaft nut on the big bore steering box. Synergy's does though if anyone needs to know that.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve 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.
