Rear trackbar bracket that won't rub 2.5 reservoir shocks

I bought my Jeep with the lift installed (I think it was a pro comp lift) and have since changed everything out except the rear bracket. I have King 2.5 reservoir shocks on the jeep and the rear track bar bracket has been rubbing the shock. It made a nice gash before I realized it and took a grinder to the bracket to prevent further damage. Well it is still rubbing a little so I want to replace it with a bracket that I won't have to grind down OR weld on.

Does anyone know if there is a bolt on bracket that won't rub with the larger shocks?

Thanks in advance. Sorry for the shitty pics.

EDIT: Adding some responses i've received from a few manufacturers.


Synergy Part #8056 - $135.99
Hi Albert,

Thank you for the email. We have run our 8056 rear track bar bracket with Fox's 2.5" shocks and they do work together. The Kings should be similar. Some factors that may contribute to interference are if the axle has been pushed back with longer control arms, if it has been pushed towards the driver side due to the track bar length, or if the pinion angle is too high. Also, relocated shock mounts can affect this as well.



Rough Country Part #RC1166 $29.95
Unfortunately, we have not tried this so I can not give you a definite answer. Sorry!


JKS Part #OGS170 - $118.75

Hi Albert,

Thank you for choosing JKS.

I have attached a photo of our bracket with a 2.5" Fox piggy back. I get a little rub at the base of the piggy back mount on the factory track bar bracket that we attach to, but everything else clears.

Thank you
Justin



Teraflex Part #1954776 - $102.59
I do not know if our track bar bracket will clear the 2.5” king shock I believe it will but am not totally sure. It has no problem clearing our 2 ” Falcon shocks so I believe it will also clear the king. I have attached some pictures so you can see the clearance.

I just sent them an email asking if it will clear larger diameter shocks - we'll see what they say.

Either way, it's worth a shot. Wouldn't mind grinding up a used/cheaper bracket if it does rub. How much is shipping to 90012?

I have the UD60s and was rubbing on the trac barbracket. I loosened that gold resi bracket clamp and moved it down and gave me just enough clearance. Couldn't tell if it was rubbing the body or the clamp. Maybe that will help.

2015 JKU with a few upgrades!!

Thanks for the tip. Mine is actually rubbing the shock body, not the reservoir so I have to move the shock away or get a bracket that won't interfere. I've emailed a handful of manufacturers looking for the right one.

I've put together some responses I've received from a few manufacturers regarding bracket fitment when paired with 2.5" shocks.

Edit: Adding Readylift's response:


Readylift Bracket for 3"-4" lift - $34.79

Hello,

Thank you for contacting ReadyLIFT suspension. To the best of my knowledge we have not tested the brackets with a King. We do offer returns for up to 30 days on un installed product. You could purchase item and hold up to area without installing to determine fitment. Returns are subject to a 20% restock fee and shipping both ways will not be refunded. However this is going to be the only way to determine fitment. Have a great rest of your week. Take care.
