Track bar problems!!

Hey guys so I got this track bar

Pure Performance Heavy Duty Adjustable Track Bar

Not from George, but got it used on Ebay with very low KM's. Went to install it today and turns out it hits on the frame side where the actual back side of the bracket is so I can't even put it up to the bolt hole. Now the thing never came with instructions but I have the 3" kore Lift and I thought this would be the perfect addition to re center my axle but I ended up having to throw the OEM trackbar back in good way to waste an hour ugh... anyone got any ideas?

The Arm of the trackbar is hitting the Back side of the Bracket below where the bolt hole is. Here is a Paint diagram... forgive me for my Crap art skills, I don't paint, I wrench lol.

Dont know if it makes any difference, but the listing in 8LUG says
"* Not recommended for stock trucks or lifts less than 4"

**Recommended for lift heights 6.0" or greater with a track bar drop bracket that utilized the OEM track bar. In this situation it will support up to 10" of lift."

What is the length of it Carli recommends 39.25 inches Eye center to center for up to 3 inches of lift. If it appears too long or too short the axle needs to be moved one way or the other.

Yeah guy I bought it off said he had a 2" coil spacers on his and it worked, so I assumed I shouldn't have a problem with my Kore 3" lift, I'll try and get a pic this weekend, gotta call pure performance tomorrow too

I made the bar the same length as the Factory, it just doesn't have the dog leg that the factory one does so it hits on the frame and it doesn't look like 1" of extra lift would fix the problem im having

You might be better off just getting a 3" track bar drop bracket and running your factory track bar

Jordan,
I thought that you had a Carli bar?

Anyhow, that bar should only be used with a track bar drop bracket and 4" or more of lift for the reason that you have already discovered.

F*ck... Guy told me it worked perfect with his 2" coil spacers wasted 115$ on this friggin thing. I had the carli bar on for like a month but returned it cause truck still had DW and they told me that it was another fix and did absolutely nothing for me so I returned it but since then I fixed all the DW issues and thought a track bar would be a good addition to recenter my diff.

Well can I buy the track bar drop bracket and just shorten the sh1t out of the track bar?

I suggest that you give Jeremy a call over a Rock Krawler
he is the owner and very knowledgeable. He is a nice guy to work with

Thanks for the number, luckily enough my dad has an 07 with a 6" lift so he is just gonna buy it off me what I paid and I'm gonna order another Carli or Kore track bar that actually works with a 3" kit from George.

Thanks for the help guys
