Teraflex lift question??

I just installed 2.5 bb lift,It was a easy install.Was looking in their catalog at the lift i installed and there is a rear trackbar reloc. bracket in the kit i didnt get,hmmm.Do i need it?
Oh yea my wife drove it after the install and hates it,she said it drives like a##.But my elec swaybar disconnect is broken too.(parts ordered from Dealer). Maybe when i get it replaced it will be better

must be something new, I've bought 2 TF BBs and didnt get a bracket with either of them.
Adding a bracket in the back will seriously help with the jeep wanting to turn when you hit a sharp bump.
I used a BDS frame side bracket in back on mine and it helped a LOT

Polyperformance makes awesome axle side brackets if you decide to go that route, but either one will help a lot

just looked on their site and they still just list 3 budget boost kits- just spacers, with shocks or with adapters and the pic doesn't show a track bar bracket
this is the only pic I could find

Wow, yeah lots of stuff in the catalog thats not on the site!
The new pics of the BB kit in the catalog do show a rear drop bracket that looks just like a BDS except it doesn't require drilling. I wonder if it's as strong being minus a mounting bolt?
I bet so_cal received old stock/ last years BB kit from before they started including the bracket

on a side note
the flipped draglink setup looks pretty interesting

A friend got this kit with that bracket and it (the bracket) didn't fit. The bend in the Teraflex bracket (where the trackbar will ultimately bolt to) interfered with the factory trackbar mounting bracket. So just be on the look out for that.

I live near Teraflex and they are good to work with. Give them a call and request the axle mounted bracket that wraps around the axle and the not the drop bracket that mounts to the frame. PP even makes one as well as a few others I'm sure. I just don't recommend getting a drop bracket or an axle mounted bracket that relies soley on the factory welded bracket for attachment.

The drop bracket intereferes with the shock if left in the stock location. This issue is fairly common with drop brackets from many lift companies not just Teraflex. The intereference happens when that side is fully compressed, and I have seen some of your wheelin' pics so_calif_rubi and I am sure you will reach that compressed point.

If you mean the BDS bracket, OK4WD is where I got mine - $61 shipped

If you mean the axle side brackets www.polyperformance.com or www.trailduty.com they're usually about $125

Get the Bracket!!!!!!!!!

The OE rear track bar bracket is crap. It is poorly welded (one side only!)and thin metal. I ripped mine apart going over some woops in Baja. I got the Teraflex bracket and an adjustable rear track bar. The bracket is beefy. It uses the rear OE track bar bracket to line up and the rear link bolt for stability. I was going to weld it, after the install I did not think it was necessary.
