I’m sure a few of you have seen my last thread helping a buddy with his jeep. I just spent a ton of time under it and drawing plum lines etc. Front axle is shifted to the driver side half an inch. Rear axle is shifted to the driver side a little more than an inch. As a favor I’m going to help him adjust. I’ve always done this on a lift in the past. Doing it on the floor, can I just lengthen the trac bars and wiggle my way in Witch the tires on the ground?
Or do I need to have the front tires in the air while I’m doing it? Do I need to loosen up anything else?
Thanks

I have always adjusted my track bars with the Jeep on the ground. Loosen the adjuster nut/clamp, drop the axle side and adjust it. Might have to loosen the frame side bolt on the track bar..
