track bar: bd power vs top gun customz

i think the bd power allows adjustment for lifts up tp 8 inches. topgun up to 4 inches. not really an issue since i probably wont go higher than 2.5 inches 35 inch tires.

so is there any difference in the track bars like durability, performance, quality, etc... besides aforementioned and the difference of 40 bucks?

05-12 Ford Super Duty 0"-4" Adjustable Track Bar

I like the BD power design more. Allows you to adjust it while completely installed rather than having to remove the frame side to adjust.

OK, deleted that post....my bad.

Yes you need a adj track bar..either one works ..the Top Gun bar is a Pure Performance track bar and doesn't need to be removed to adjust.

Dual SS help hunting from wider tires and loose components..not bump steer.

You will need castor correction with a 2.5" lift or get a complete Pure Performance 4 link kit and adjust to 4.5-6*


If I can help let me know.

The drag link angle in relation to the track bar angle. Ideally you'd want them to be parallel.

Not using drop brackets or drop pitman arms unless useinf both at the same time and both designed to work together...that will keeo the angles equal.

Neither one needed till a 6" lift on a '05 up.
