Track bar problems

I have a 2nd gen that I cut 2 full coils out of the front and running 2 leafs in the rear with caltracs, my question is what are you guys doing about the track bar situation in the front. All of the adjustable track bars that I have found are for adjusting for lifted trucks but have had no luck finding any for lowered trucks unless I'm miss reading something. Any input would be appreciated.

The grinch had a heim joint at the bottom of the track bar and a lukes link on the top.

Just have one built. Any good off-road shop should be able to build you one pretty easily.

Probably should just make one. Unless it’s possible to cut the stock one, figure out how much shorter it needs to be, buy a piece of tube for a sleeve that has a large enough I.D the trackbar ends will slide Into it, and then weld it back together.

You could cut the stock bar and drill and tap it for a heim joint. I wouldnt weld to the stock cast bar.
