• The installation of this bracket requires cutting part of the factory track bracket

• You must use a minimum of 3” of rear bump stop extension, PPM-8058 (3”) or
PPM-8076 (4”) to prevent the track bar from contacting the exhaust at full jounce

1. Remove the factory rear track bar from the axle bracket and loosen the track bar from the frame bracket to allow the track bar to rotate out of the way. Secure the track bar up and out of the way with a bungee cord or something similar.

2. Cut part of the factory track bar off as shown in the following pictures. The pictures
show using a 4 ½” grinder with a cut off wheel but a sawzall can also be used.

3. Attach the new track bar relocation bracket to the factory bracket as shown with the
new 9/16” bolt and lock nut; use a flat washer under the bolt head and lock nut.

the coil spring bowing because the pinion angle has increased. Solutions to this are as

• Trim the end of the bolt sticking through the nut

• Flip the bolt around so the bolt head is adjacent to the spring

• Rotate the spring so the bolts is in between coils

• Cut and rotate the lower spring mounts on the axle

• Install polyurethane lower coil wedges
