I wouldnt want to drive it without the track bar because it keeps the axle centered under the truck and a stock one wont work too well without the drop bracket, just my .02.

horrible. you would have no control of the truck, without a trac bar, when you turn the wheel you are more than likely just going to shift the frame, not turn the tires. it would be like riding on an out of control slinky. also, why do you need to have it aligned without the trac bar? that makes no sense.

you should either, put the stock trac bar on it, or bolt up the thuren bracket, bolt up the trac bar and then just do like you said and nurse it there at like 10-15mph and they can weld it all in place when you get there

there is one large bolt that you put into the bracket through the factory trac bar tab. you could put that bolt on and do like you said and nurse it down to the shop.
