Another broken trackbar

I broke my rustys trackbar sat. night on a local trail run around 2 in the morning when it broke It bent my right front shock so anyways called up rusty this morning and he is sending me a new trackbar and shock pretty good deal if you ask me. What we ended up doing is using a rear trackbar from a yj to get me home.

I agree that a broken trackbar is no laughing matter, I think someone a whlie back had one break on the highway. From what I have heard I wouldn't buy his trackbar.

Why do yj's have trackbars in the rear? I guess I will keep my uneducated mouth shut.

YJs have them in the front too. They have been "Naderized" so that they will handle as well as a Yugo.

Actually, the older CJ's wallered in and out of a lane at speed. This was found to be caused by the Leaf springs up front shifting to follow the road, and the rubber bushings did little to correct it.
By adding a trackbar, AMC eliminated the "roll" effect of the rubber bushings and it was extremely more stable at speed.

Ralph Nader wasn't all bad (unless you count increased insurance premiums just because it said Jeep on the title) He gave us the 1982 wide trac axles and these track bars.

Ralph Nader wasn't all bad as far as eco-Nazis go.

Narrow track 4WD Corvairs would have been all the rage if it wasn't for him.
