Trackbar question

I'm looking for a adjustable trackbar with the factory ballstud design.
I know there are plenty of trackbars with the reworked design but i want to use the balljoint design. Main reason is our vechile inspections here in sweden they don't like when we change parts at all. :-(
Any suggestions?

I know my local oreily auto parts sells an adjustable trac bar that utilizes the stock ball stud setup I am sure you can order online at oreilyautoparts.com or oreilyauto.com

I'm afraid they see the difference between the orginal trackbar and the relocated with bushing in both ends.
And personally i think the stud design is good enough for my driving.

wouldn't they also notice, as easily, the adjustable part of factory ball design as being not original

look into the RARE PARTS HD, it is a stock design, adjustable, rebuild able and very beefy in comparison.

until I leveled my 2 gen, I ran it for years with no issues. on a leveled truck (2.75") the angle was a little severe so I swapped to a synergy conversion

Yeah there's a possibility that they want to complain about the adjustable part as well. But i try to keep it as stock as possible and for my driving i think the stud design is more than enough.
Thanks for all the input.

While im still here i can try another question.
For a 95 cummins dodge what is to prefer for front coils? Linear or progressive kinds?
Leaning towards thuren linear ones.
Dailydriven truck with minimum abuse.
Have bilstein 5100 shocks for it.

I prefer linear, and run Thuren springs on both my 06 and 96. The 3" springs on my 96 is meant for a 3rd gen and it gave me around a 4.25" lift over factory. So it needed an adjustable track bar.

i like my thurens...but would like to try a progressive.

on my 3rd gens, they have all had progressives, that said...all ride very well, but the thurens FLOAT more. they are a soft rate.
