Cracked Frame

If it is legal in your area, get rid of the track bars since the leaf springs provide the lateral axle location. The track bars exert such tremendous force on the frame from fighting the leaf spring that if you wheel your Jeep you can rip the frame-side track bar mount or the frame itself. Get rid of them and enjoy more articulation, a better ride, and the joy that you’ve gotten rid of one of Jeep’s unfortunately necessary anti-Nader devices.
