BD Diesel adjustable track bar

I bought a BD Diesel track bar from Xtreme Diesel. A little hesitant because its considerably cheaper than the Icon and Carli models. My 06 F250 4x4 with 2.5 leveling kit had bump steer and a slight 40 mph steering wheel shimmy that drove me crazy trying to eliminate. I'm glad to report that the BD Bar and an alignment has finally solved my problems. 100% satisfied!

And BTW it looks a little cheezy in the pics but this bar is all beef. Very impressed.

I plan on running this track bar when I put the leveling kit on my '06. How did you determine how long the bar should be when you installed it? Or did the alignment shop handle that for you?

4wheel Parts in Sacramento did the install. They did a nice job. One side of the bar has reversed threads so it is adjustable on the truck. They adjusted it during the alignment process.

that is nice most you have to remove to adjust
Texas A&M
if you install at home and decide to get an alignment (not necessary) most alignment shops won't adjust the track bar since they are not aware of them , so you need to ask

or just thow a straight edge up each side of your properly inflated tires and measure the difference in distance to a fixed point on the truck

when measuring track bar length, go from a similar point on each side of the axle, to a like spot on the frame. dont use body points due to mis alignment. a straight line is bet, lets say hook the top of the balljoint and pull straight to the frame above the other side ball joint and viceversa.
