2005 f350-adjustable track bar? Balljoint already flipped! Pictures?

Alright-so for those of you familiar with the 05-up, you know that you can flip the track bar balljoint to get better steering angles. I have done that, but still need an adjustable track bar. I need to know what bars are available, and make sure they are straight, not bent like OEM. If I use a non-straight bar, the curve will be backwards since the balljoint is flipped.

I'm asking-who with an 05-up has an adjustable track bar WITH a flipped track bar balljoint? What brand, and pictures?

I think you can remove the joint in the bar and flip it in the bar itself.

I just ordered a topguncustomz adjustable trackbar. I already have a flipped tracbar, so I'll be installing it in that configuration. They said they had never heard of the balljoint being flipped, and said it wouldn't work that way-I find it hard to believe as the bends in there bar are almost non-existent. Seems as though if you can flip the stocker (which has an extreme bend). That the aftermarket bar would flip and work nicer. My truck has been death wobbling like crazy lately-The track bar bushing is shot, and because of the way the bar is the differential is offset about an inch.; I Figured an adjustable track bar would re-center it, address the bad bushin issue, and see how it goes from there. One of my shocks is also missing the busing (it's literally completely gone), so I ordered some bilsten 7100 reservoir shocks. I'm pretty excited to go through my suspension!

I'll make sure to get pictures!
