Rear Track Bar Length

Just received my Currie rear adjustable track bar today (Brown Santa!). I have Currie's front and installing was kind of intuitive...lining the holes was easy given the ability to shift the front axel via a turn of the steering wheel.

Question: Anyone have a suggested "initial"' setting given my 3-1/4 OME lift? I realize this may require tweaking but an initial would be helpful.

Thanks all!

All I did was remove the factory bar, measure from a common point on the inner sidewall of each rear tire to the frame, and used a ratchet strap from axle to frame to equalize those measurements. Then I adjusted the new track bar 'til it fit easily. It was much easier than making multiple adjustments to the bar, then measuring tire to frame.

1997 TJ with LOTS of stuff.
2011 2DR Rubicon with stuff.
2012 JK8 with some stuff.

Used this method...worked like a charm. Thanks!
