Adjusting sway bar disco's

How should I set the length on my disco's, they are from Rubicon Express. I was thinking the jeep should be on level ground and then adjust them so that they slide on and off with ease but still a little snug.
Just not sure.

If you're talking about how to adjust their lengths to have the correct antiswaybar angle, make them long enough so that the antiswaybar is just above horizontal. 15 degrees above horizontal is about right but the exact angle is not super critical. You just don't want the antiswaybar horizontal or especially bad would be if it were below horizontal.

x2. The swaybar itself needs to be elevated 10-15 degrees or you'll have too much sway ability (I've always wanted to say that) with it connected.

Since it sounds like they came with your lift, the should adjust enough.

The critical piece is to mount the storage pins (assuming you have them). Do that as you describe. Put it on level ground, disconnect both sides, mount one pin and then CENTER the 2nd pin else it will always be a PITA to stow them (ask me how I know).
