I have this same issue with the track bar hitting the frame side attach bracket. Is this that big of an issue really? My life is the 2.5" Adventure series 1 with the fixed lower control arms, RRD shocks and I added adjustable RK front upper control arms.
I had the same issue, I grabbed the Synergy Front Track Bar when I upgraded steering (Synergy front track bar, drag link, tie rod, and sector shaft brace.)

Total game changer, wish I did it sooner.

Yeah I'd love to do the same...especially with the tie rod and drag link but Synergy has been out of stock for a couple weeks now...guess I'll just have to be patient. And when you say game changer....what specifically did it help?

how are you guys getting the RK track bar to fit. For me the axle doesn’t fit no matter what. Seems like i might to Gris the bracket a little but to get it to fit. Any thing you guys can suggest?

Got pics?........ I’m running RK, didn’t have any trouble, I need to see how it’s not fitting.

I think it's on page 11 of this thread. Track bar just slightly rubs the axle side attach bracket. RK said my axle may be pushed too far forward but I have fixed LCAs so I don't see how that's possible. They still haven't gotten back to me after I sent pics.

Here’s my axle side mount. The track bar is cocked because I’m on a ramp.

Roky, mine won’t go into the bracket with the bushing. Thinking I might have to grind it a little bit.

Oh, I thought you were taking about the axle side, yeah, you can grind it out a little, or pry apart as @JimLee said, which is what I also did to mine.

I just used a massive crescent wrench to pry the mount open a hair, torquing the bolt correctly pulls it back like it never happened.
This ^ I would say got pinched a little.

Hold on that is the axle side. Frame side is fine, it slides right in.

Oh... ok, I’d still try and pry apart a little, spray it down with wd40. You’ll probably have to put it in and take it out a couple times to get your axle centered. That’s funny mine slid right in on axle side , was a little snug on frame side.
