Sloppy disconnects

Anyone notice sloppy'er steering after installing their disconnects..... would it have anything to do with the angle on the sway bar? maybe i need to make the disconnects longer so the swaybar is at a greater angle.

idk jeep seems to be more out of control than usual

Mine got better. Do yours have any play? If you were to grab one and try to shake it... Should be tight.

About the sway bar angle, they say 15* is the best, and that is 15 ABOVE the horizontal.

The sway bar should be at 10 - 15 degrees upward if you are looking at it from the side. That is what the instruction sheet recommended from JKS.

530ktm is 100% right. That's what JKS's instructions say.

JKS states 10 degrees up to a 2" lift and 15 degrees between 2" and 6".

Not at all. I put on JKS quicker discos after running for about a month without a sway bar (broken link). Once i put them on it felt like a race car! Its pretty fun to drive without a sway bar, you just have to be much more careful, like a semi truck driver!
