The track bar is a fixed length so it can never be "shortened".
Think of it this way, picture your JK at rest with the current track bar configuration. If you squat the JK from the rest position, the axle will want to shift to the driver's side. If you invert the track bar orientation and do the same thing, then the axle will want to shift to the passenger side which would conflict with the gas tank.
