  1. If necessary, raise and safely support the vehicle for access; however, the track bar may normally be removed with the vehicle sitting on its wheels. (In order to assure proper alignment and installation, the suspension should support the vehicle's weight during this procedure.) Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface with the parking brake fully engaged and both the front and rear wheels chocked.

The springs must be supporting the weight of the vehicle while the track bar nuts are being torqued. If the springs are not in their normal ride position, vehicle ride comfort could be affected.

  1. Unbolt the bar from the frame bracket and the axle bracket.
  3. Installation is the reverse of removal. Torque the retaining nut at the axle shaft tube bracket to 74 ft. lbs. (100 Nm). Torque the retaining nut at the frame bracket to 125 ft. lbs. (168 Nm).
