Rock Krawler rear CA question

I have had the RK rear upper and lower CAs in my garage for way too long. Its time to put them on. I know the install relocates the axle back about an inch. As I was scoping out what I need to do, I realized that relocating the sway bar back one inch as the directions indicate will contact it with my muffler. Am I missing something?

Thank you kindly,

Try installing the arms FIRST, and only relocate the swaybar if needed. Its kinda random for some reason, some need to, some dont.

I'm setting them for the 3.5" lift. I read in the thread for the new RK 2.5 coil kit that they relocate this for the 5.5" lift. My arms were purchased separately and they came with the bolts, so I assumed this should be done.

Thoughts?

What lift do you have?? If you set the arms for 3.5 inches with a 2.5 lift, you will be close, but just a little too long, and the 5.5 arm is different length than the 3.5 arm so that should not matter anyway. If you have LESS than 2.5" of lift, you should not install these arms anyway, as they will be too long and cause issues.

Having installed a RK 3.5 lift on my POS, this is the best advice that could be had. That way, you can tell how much you have to move the sway bar back.

At the moment, I have the OME HD springs and shocks with a Teraflex .75" spacer in the rear. I have the RK front lower CA, rear track bar and bracket, and front track bar installed. I'm getting RK 3.5" springs from a member here and I have the rear upper and lower CAs in the garage.
