Help I broke something!

Hey guys and gals,
I think I broke something on the stabilizer? I'm noon to jeeps. Here is a pick. This came apart on both sides. What's the exact part I need?

And do I replace the rod with a stock one or do I need something different because I am lifted 2.5inch?

Thanks!

That's the sway bar link. Might as well upgrade to the quick disconnects now

Quick dissconects are for more flex off road. If you dont plan on offroading, just get the regular ones. Either way theyre cheap and easy to put on.

personal opinion, if you wheel a lot, get the AR, if you dont plan on wheeling much, get the non disco bar ones like linked above. the added cost of a disco just doesnt make sense to me when all you are really doing is pulling a pin instead of removing a bolt. to me, that isnt worth $100

x2 so I replaced the bolts for pins that cost $25

I just took the links and sway bar off of my jeep. Been driving without it for about a year if you can deal with some extra body roll

If I don't care to have disconnects can I just replace with stock ones? Or do I need some that are made for Tj's with a 2.5'' lift?

You can get adjustable links. Without disconnects you have to realize when you flex you suspension out your going to break links. All the sway bar does is keep the suspension tight when on the road when you go off road you have to take your sway bar out of the equation

I think the JKS Quick Disconnects are currently the best out there.
