Mainly pops turning left
I am running a RE track bar and a Core 4x4 double shear bracket.

I just turned the heim ninety degrees, added a pair of misalignment spacers to fill most of the width and reduce the bolt down to a 1/2" bolt. A grade 8 1/2" bolt, grade 8 nylock nut and a few grade 8 washers finished the job. I have three washers on the inside of the bracket to finish filling out the gap.

I think you could also run a Johnny Joint in the RE track bar.

The Core 4x4 bracket required me to tighten the heim all the way into the track bar in order to center the axle. That will vary according to lift.
