Default Track bar bending




I have a 8 inch lift on my 05 2500 37inch tires and my adjustable track bar broke the other night on the bottom thread.. been on the truck for a year or two. Just had a shop replace the ball and u joints and about 2 months later it broke. Bought another track bar off eBay and this one came with a Heim joint for the top.. but it all back on turn the wheels all the way to the right and everything seemed ok turned them back the the left and just about all the way around the track bar bent on the bottom about where the other one broke. I need some info on why this might be thanks

Looks like it is hitting something, have someone watch it as you turn the wheel and see if it hits something.
