installing coil spacer help

I need to install some 3/4" coil spacers on my 03 jeep.
I dont think its a difficult job however im unsure on a few things. The jeep currently has a 4" lift, when i install them in the rear, i have to disconnect the rear track bar which i think is stock, just curious if after i install these spacers will the track bar still reach after the coil spacers are installed?

Next is basicall the same ? for the front will all the bars hook back up, I currently have JKS disconnects. the steering arms im pretty sure are stock. I do not plan to remove the factory spring isolaters, gonna leave those in and add the 3/4" spacers. Also will I need an alignment?

With 4'' of lift you should at least have a trackbar bracket back there. Just adding a 3/4'' spacer shouldn't be an issue hooking them back up.

Next is basicall the same ? for the front will all the bars hook back up,
Again shouldn't be an issue. But you should at least have another trackbar braket and probally a drop pitman arm it your track bar is stock. HIGHLY recommend an adjustable tracbar and loose any drop bracket up front.

I currently have JKS disconnects.
The JKS disco links are adjustable... just reset them to reestablish the 10* up angle on the swaybar to put it at factory spec.

the steering arms im pretty sure are stock. I do not plan to remove the factory spring isolaters, gonna leave those in and add the 3/4" spacers.
Fine to leave the factory isolates in there.

Also will I need an alignment?
YES!!! with any change in suspension height the alignment is changed.

Also if you are unsure of what you have "suspension/steering" wise. Take some pictures of your suspension/steering and post them up. We'll let you know what you have.

sway bar

just curious if any of you run without your rear sway bar, i know the track bar in the rear has to stay but how about the sway bar, that is my concern for the rear, by adding 3/4" spacers will it hook back up and not throw anything off?


And what kit could i buy online to make it work, should it not reach to hook back up?

Disconnecting the front sway bar off the road is enogh. Don´t remove the rear sway bar.
