Can someone take a measurement for me?

Need a little help. Can someone with an aev 2.5 lift take a measurement of their front sway bar disconnects with the bracket? How long essentially does the aev bracket make your oem disconnect? I have some teraflex quick disconnects that are good to 3" of lift. I know the lift I am asking about is 2.5. So, it shouldn't be a problem, but a lot of times you get more height than what it is advertised giving. Thanks for your help!

The AEV lift is great, I measured the total length of the bracket and swaybar link, 8 7/8". I'm planning on replacing the combination due to the interference when I install the "C" Gussets, other option is to trim the bracket and weld them to the axle housing from what I understand. Good luck

Forgot to say that the measurement is from centerline bolt to bolt.

Are you looking for length to set the sway bar itself ?

Every jeep is going to be a little different. 2 door/4 door. How much weight etc.
You want the sway bar to be parallel or 3* positive.

If this is not what you're asking ..... Disregard

Thanks Kjeeper. I currently have a bb that moved the oem rear links to the front. I have an aev 2.5 on the way which uses brackets on the oem front links, which I no longer have. I also have some teraflex quick disconnects 0-3" waiting in the garage. With my original question I was just trying to figure out if those teraflex links would be comparable in length to the oem link/aev bracket combo. It looks like they are from the previous measure given.

I tried changing them out today, but the top bolt is seized. I couldn't break the thing no matter what it tried. Any suggestions?

Impact if you have it, if not spray wd40 or other penetrating lubricant, then use a breaker bar or use a snipe on the existing wrench also try tapping it with a hammer or use a hammer to hit the wrench (poor mans impact ) it should eventually come off or you will need to buy better tools if you break yours

0-3" means they are adjustable. So you are fine.

Frozen ? You can try soaking with PB blaster but I like using heat to free bolts.
