Lightbulb XJ: Need to build a trac bar!

Alright, my axle bushing took a grap so I want to build me up a new track bar to go with my steering set up. I wanna go over the axle mount set up, still running my hiem joint but want a 2" bushing on the axle. But where do I get the bushing? I know I've seen them just forgot where.
Also has anyone else did something similar post pics if got them thanks.

You could try JC Whitney or an industrial type supplier.

Right. Just thought of that myself, was looking at RE for the metal sleeve to weld to the end of the stock for the bushing.
But I was thinking perhaps just doing a double ended heim joint track bar, I like joints anyways. :tonka: be easy enough to fab up a mount for the axle and just have to grap up a couple more tube ends.??????

I went with a stock bushing on the axle and a Billistic Fab 7/8 Heim on the frame.

They sell to the places you'd normally buy them from and you get them the day after you order them.
