Sway Bar????

i have a 2000 wrangler se and the driver side swaybar link has seperated and the piece stuck to the sway bar is wielded on. It appears that i have to replace the whole sway bar. the only sway bar i have been able to find is a rear sway bar.(didnt even know there was a rear sway bar) any ideas to find one or fix what i have would be awsome. and what would come for driving with a broken swaybar link!

I have a 2000 se and I don't have mine hooked up. Just take it easy till your used to it and you'll be fine. Hust pull it loose and out of the way of anything else till you can get it fixed.

I would put an ad into the various Jeep forums Parts Wanted forums to find a replacement. Many TJ owners have replaced their stock front antiswaybar with things like the Antirock and I'm betting they would sell their OE antiswaybar pretty cheaply.

I would not drive around long like that, the TJ's coil spring suspension doesn't do well on the street... especially if you got into an emergency maneuver situation, without the antiswaybar being functional.

It wouldn't be ideal to ship but I'm willing to give you one for the cost of shipping. Neither of my sway bars have end links. But this might be a good time to upgrade to a set of quick disconnects.

Yes. It is factory. I just took it off my 2006 rubicon because I am stretching the front wheel base and won't need it.

Go with an aftermarket sway bar that disconnects.

The disconnects allow you to easily disconnect your sway bar allowing your jeep to flex more or give it greater articulation while offroading, then after your done offroading you can easily connect it again to have your street manners back.

You will find that many people will recommend the JKS quicker disconnects. Depending on your budget look into the Currie Antirock. Another option is also to make your own.

You can unbolt just the bottom of the swaybar link from the axle. Then use some zip ties or bungee cords to hold the antiswaybar up so it's out of the way. There is a very convenient gap where the upper coil spring mount is welded to the frame you can pass a zip tie or bungee cord through to secure the antiswaybar up to.
