2.5 inch Rough country lift problem

I just finnished putting in a 2.5 inch hanger and shackle kit from rough country on my 99.5 and now i cant get my track bar to fit. I ve read on hear that there is drop brackets and ajustable track bars to fix the problem but no brands or prices. Just want to know whats the best and cheapest way of fixing it. Ive heard of people just pulling and prying on it till it lines up but i think that will just wear out bushings and screw up the front end if i do that. any info helps thanks

just turn your wheels all the way to the left with it on the ground, it will take a ton of pressure off of the track bar and you can fit it back up

Thats a negative on that one. I couldn't get mine to line back up without putting the relocation bracket on. But my kit came with one and it was a rough country kit as well.

I'm addicted to diesel and I step on it constantly!

I figured he had one of those since it was the rough country kit just thought he might be having a hard time with all the tension

I went with a Zone adjustable track bar, it was here in 2 days. If you have to force it, your suspension will be in a bind.

Ya Rough country has too different kits one with hangers and one with some kind of leaf set up and trac bar should have just spent the extra 150 and went with the other kit but oh well was the zone trac bar pretty good quality?

I paid $250 shipped to my door for 2.5" add a leaf packs and relocation bracket and ubolts. But its the full leaf packs too. And it brought it up about 3-3.25 inches
