Adjustable track bar

I just wanted to get a few opinions on adjustable track bars. I have a 2005 F250 with a 2 1/2" leveling kit. My front axle sits to the drivers side approximately 2" and have started getting a little wobble at around 40mph. I bought the truck used with the leveling kit already installed and have put around 15,000 miles on the truck with no problems. I looked at a PMF adjustable track bar and a BD thru Thoroughbred Diesel. There is a big cost difference between these two products. Thank you in advance.

We have two versions. Our HD Solid Mount bar that replaces the lower ball joint. This unit while being compared to traditional track bars is more expensive but when compared with similar ones (WC Motorsports, ReadyLift, etc) it is VERY competitively priced. We also offer a directly replacement that mounts up to the existing ball joint. That unit sells for $350 and is far and above more heavy duty than any other I have compared to. Our bar is 1.5" OD .250 wall DOM with a 1" QA1 heim.

Regardless of which you choose, I would highly suggest one with a solid rod end joint, such as a heim. Any poly type bushing has a very good chance of premature failure.
