This is my front suspension and steering in my 2001 XJ.

 I decided to take a closer look tonight.

This is what’s known as a track bar relocation bracket. It’s designed to allow your factory track bar up to 3" of lift.

This is clearly an adjustable track bar. Designed to adjust to the proper length after a lift.

Now, the track bar and the drag link should be parallel to avoid bump steer. The relocation bracket clearly fucks that up, and there’s absolutely zero reason to run both the relocation bracket and the adjustable bar. Sometime within the next week I get to rip out that stupid bracket and properly adjust the bar. Hopefully it drives a little better after that.
