Default adjustable track bar

hi

I've just discovered my track bar has a worn ball joint at the frame end, and am wondering if this is a unique part, it has left hand thread and looks like a larger diameter that the steering ends.

from memory i thought it was a Whiteline part but I'm not sure.

other than take the track bar out and either try Repco or a suspension place what are my options.

anyone had to replace one yet.

thanks

ewen

yep thats the part about being adjustable, the frame end ball joint screws in and out of the track bar tube, thereby being adjustable (with a locking nut)

(this is an after market track bar that allows for adjustment to compensate for raised height vehicles, as you raise the vehicle the standard track bar pulls the axle to one side, the adjustable bar compensates)

so as the ball joint is worn it seems to me i can replace it, problem is with what

i guess I'm going to have to pull it out and measure, or take the bar or ball joint to Repco or a suspension shop.

i was trying to avoid that if i could, and if i could source the part without dismantling the car i could do the removal and replacement all at the one time.

guess i can't.

Default tie rod

It's Going to depend on the brand of trackbar/panhard.
My Roadsafe Automotive panhard uses a L/H thread tie rod Part: TE001L
Which is the same tie rod that goes on the drag link at the pitman arm on an XJ.

This is from Rusty offroads website regarding their track bar

We've used a few different tie-rod ends in our track bars:

OEM part # 52005739 - - MOOG part # ES3096L
OEM part # 52005740 - - MOOG part # ES3095R
OEM part # 52000599 - - MOOG part # ES2223R
OEM part # J8136600 - - MOOG part # ES140R

Good luck with it.

The Roadsafe unit is one of the most common panhards here sold by lots of companies, I had to source a replacement for mine, the part number for mine was TE3194HD...

ok thats kool , the site says that its the same joint used for steering, goes into pitman arm.

looking at mine now i would agree that the two joints are the same.

so I'm going to order two and replace both as the pitman arm joint also has some play in it.

thanks for the help
