suspension questions??

i have an 8.5 inch skyjacker lift on my truck, rated for 38 inch tires. i put a 2.5 inch coil spring spacer from skyjacker on top of the front coil springs in order to clear 40s. i believe that the extra lift however has pulled the track bar down and is pulling the front axle to the side. i was thinking about getting an adjustable track bar from fabtech, that claims to be adjustable from 6"-10". so if i take the 8.5" track bar drop bracket off and the track bar, and replace it with the fabtech track bar, will it work together? and also are trackbars supposed to be curved, or is mine bent? heres a pic of it..[IMG][/IMG]

and heres a link to the track bar from fabtech:
Adjustable Trac Bar

any help is greatly appreciated! thanks guys!

You will need to keep your drop trac bar bracket. The trac bar angle will be horrible if you use the the factory trac bar bracket with anything over 6".
