The diff is on the other side, but the mounts for the track bar are identical. If you reverse the track bar the bushing-thingies (sorry for the technical terms) are in the wrong angle.

Got the control arms installed, the track bar is still a few weeks away.

So my recommendation is to do the control arms (front upper/lower, rear) and A-Arm spacer in addition to the track bar/panhard rod.

Check out the pictures in thread http://www.ausjeepoffroad.com/forum/...ad.php?t=66214

I got it from http://www.kevinsoffroad.com/jksarms.html .

Kevin is really helpful to assist with RHD/LHD questions and find the best shipment options for ya. He even asked me to send him a panhard rod so he can make sure that everything will be fine with mine.

I got from him the postage option with delivery within 3-5 days, but you can get it cheaper if you are willing to wait weeks or months (not me ... I want it all ... I want it now). No hassle with customs either way.

Guys,
as you might be aware my WJ is gone.

Kevin is still keen to get a RHD adjustable trackbar going. Anybody willing to take over the project. Kevin is ready to make a prototype (I posted to him a track bar), but needs somebody to take over.

Cost wise there is not much left. Only the normal cost + postage and the time to install it (have it installed) and test it.

Let me know and I put you in touch with Kevin.

Hi Dante

I will take over if you want. I sent an email to Kevin a little over 2 weeks ago to see what was going on and to let him know I was interested in a RHD TB.

I have also been in contact with the people at Iron Rock Offroad (I bought some springs from them) and they are investigating a RHD TB also. Let me know what you think.

How are things with the insurance company. Are you going to get another Grand or even stay with jeep?

Cheers

Matt
