After reading a few other threads, many which wander way off topic to talk about tires, shocks, older frame styles, llamas, wobble etc, I figure I can give back to the org and do a write up on flipping the track bar.
I have a 2006 f250 with a 6" superlift that also has a 2" leveling kit. I have driven the truck like this for 65,000, about 50,000 of it is with the superlift 8" superduty kit55-12-9026 radius arm bracket kit.
The ride was decent, but always kept me alert. I wish I would have discovered this a while ago as I am amazed at the difference in how my truck drives. It feels like it did when I paid $40k for it sitting on a simple 6" kit with 18,000 miles 5 years ago!
I read somewhere that with 8" & up one can flip their track bar to correct angles and eliminate bump steer. For no cost, I got out my tools and spentless than 2 hours doing this.
Wrenches, socket set, big breaker bar, pitman arm tool, harbor freight 3 in 1 balljoint tool.
Time 1-2 hours
Skill level - medium, easy if you are familiar with a ball joint press.
Pictures tell the story.
After nut removed
I read that I should cut the bolt down on the ball joint, so I did. I also disconnected at the upper mount after I couldn't pop the track bar loose. In my experience, I have gotten wiser and don't pound and bang if not necessary. My pitman arm removal tool was perfect for this. This pic is looking up at the bottom of the ball joint.
The ball joint was still to large for my press, but this is how it should stack Up to press it out.
I had to improvise, luckily I already used the pitman arm tool and had it laying out. It was the right size to start pressing out the ball joint.
I don't see any more decent photos but install was pretty straight forward without suprise.
I installed the frame side first the even though the track bar bends the opposite way, it still bolted up Rather easy after sawing the steering wheel a couple times.
One major bonus I wish I knew years ago, the superlift track bar bracket has a piece that can be switched to push the track bar to the passenger side as well. I just may have to replace my 6" coil with an 8" coil or maybe a 10 and eliminate the spacers.
So before and after, you can see much improvement and the ride is amazing. No bump steer like before, I was driving with 1 finger on the wheel
