In the middle of RC disco installation. Question

I got the 2.5" RC discos for the 2-2,5" lift. Anyways, it says to adjust them to 10" but that defiantly will not go the distance, I can unthread them to length but then I'm barley threaded on. Yikes. My question is.. Am I going to have to undo the sway bar brackets to loosen it up and bring it down so the links can meet that 10"?

just pull it down it is only held in place by friction it moves up and down.

What do you mean it won't go the distance? You can rotate the whole sway bar down to the 10" clearance when it's disconnected from the axle.

Let us know! It may be stiff but the whole bar rotates within the bushing. Otherwise the sway bar wouldn't work.

All Installed! For 100 less than JKS I'm glad I went with these. I see no problem with connecting and disconnecting like some people mention?

Also not having to zip tie anything when undisco woot woot

Teddy, be sure to check the torque after 2 weeks. One of mine loosened up considerably when I did my recheck. No problem since.
Also put a little Vaseline on the lower disconnect post. It'll make the lower link easier to disconnect. First time I used them after they were on for about 2 months I had to grab a wrench and tap the link off. Last time I was wheeling the urethane bushing easily came off the post because it was lightly greased.
