Right Size JKS Quicker Disconnects

I have a light JKU and am going to be putting 2" Synergy coils up front. I expect that this will give me 2.5" of lift.

What are the correct JKS Quicker Disco's to use (0-2" or 2.5-6")?

BTW, the reason for the JKSs is that they appear to be the easiest to re-connect. I won't be disco'ing that often (for the near future), but am deathly afraid that my lack of mechanical skill will cause me heartache when trying to re-connect. Will I be better off with the Teraflex 0-3" (odd, in that they don't appear to be adjustable) or some other brand?

Thanks!

I just put these on my 2011 JK Sport. Pretty easy to do. I have a 2.5 inch RC shock and spring lift and went with the Disconnects for the 2.5" to 6" lift. You do not expand them that much but leaves you room for more...

Thanks. I'm worried that it won't leave me room for "less." If I get a bumper at some point and am back to a 2" lift in front, will I have shot myself in the foot by going with the 2.5-6"ers?

if anything... it's better if your sway bar links are a little longer than shorter. shorter links could result in you spinning the sway bar... not something you want to have happen

you want your sway bar parallel with the ground.

Good point. I just read through some install instructions, and it looks like the bottom part of the quicker (the side with the adjustment nut) could unscrew completely off (if you wanted to).

If one was properly motivated, cutting 1" off the threaded shaft would turn a 2.5" - 6" disconnect into a 1.5" - 5", right?

Simple enough, no greasing required, and the links have a place to mount back onto the frame. BUT---how do these adjust to get the right swaybar angle?

Damn, I'm too much of a geek and not mechanical enough for the Jeep!

I had the TeraFlex ones and they were very hard to get back on. I just got the 2.5" to 6" JKS ones yesterday. Hope to get them on soon.
