Sway Bar Links

I bought my jeep with I think a 3" lift already on it. The pricks that owned it before me took off the sway bar links and never replaced them. Seeing as how I'm not positive about the lift size, I'm trying to find adjustable sway bar links. I'm sure the lift is 0-4". Does anybody know where I can find these? Or, is the material in the factory sway bar links weldable, or is it too hard? I could cut the factory style replacements and weld in an extension...

JKS makes a great product

I haven't run sway bar links for a year. You can hardly tell they are gone. I run 4 inches of lift on 33s.

hey jakec, you just answered one of my questions. i was going to throw away my swaybar anyway but i was debating about the trac bars. can you still travel at highway speed without too much body roll ? i should mention that i have 35x14.5x15's and an soa.

Its all a matter of opinion, and every jeep is different. I run both on the front and no trackbar in the rear.

If you drive on highway at highway speeds I'd keep the sway bars but put quick disconnects on it.
