This is our rear suspension at full compression. Our rear track bar is made from 11⁄4-inch, 0.250-wall DOM and 3⁄4-inch Ruff Stuff Specialties rod ends. Always build the front and rear track bars to head down from the frame to the axles in opposite directions. Ideally, the front and rear track bars will be parallel with the ground at ride height. This provides the best handling. In reality, this is not always easy to do or even possible. You have to make some compromises when fabricating your suspension. The compromises you decide to make will be dictated by how you use the Jeep. Once you have everything mocked up, cycle the suspension in as many ways as you can to check for clearance issues.
