Sway bar disconnect

How much will the front sway bar disconnect help with stock lift on my 2011 jku? How much more flex will they give?

Offroad it is always good news to have you sway bar disconected. Whether you got 5in of lift or no lift. On a un even surface trail disconecting your sway bar will increase your travel greatly making it more likely to keep your tires on the ground giving you better traction and balance

I climbed the rock in my pic and the back tire is about an inch off the ground. With it disconnected it would prob remain on the ground for traction right?

yes more then likely.. disconecting the sway bar does have it's greatest effect on your front axle but in turn does have some effect in the rear end of the Jeep as well. In the end when offroad do you need to have quick disco's, no.. But it doesn't hurt and in my opinion worth the 150 or so dollar investment.

The difference is HUGE! Here are some pics of mine, it has a 2.5" lift, but still you get the point.
Here is mine connected:


That's literally as far up as it would go.

No problem. I would invest in some quick disco's. I really need to get some. It is a big pain to manually disconnect them.

Speaking of disconnects. I have been looking at some to add to my Jeep. JKS has been on my wish list for awhile now but just seen the Warrier disconnect and find them intriguing in their design. I am assuming you can take out the entire center section. Anyone ever use them?

Yeah I'm looking at getting a set too, I keep coming back to the Teraflex because you can connect the sway bar to the frame when you DQ the axle, but I had seen some threads complaining about build quality. I just like the idea of clipping them in and out and not bungieing anything or storing parts anywhere, anyone have any experience?

You do the same with the JKS discos, and they are adjustable and very well built. Trust the first name in well buily Discos. JKS.

You'll regret it not just getting the best for a few bucks more.

Wait, the JKS has a mount back up into the frame too? I thought with the JKS it's just a double pin and you take out the shaft, so you still have to tie up the bar? Because the JKS is what I want, I just want the ability to attach the sway bar to someplace safe even more

I've never had a problem with my sway bar coming loose when I just push it up out the way. If your bar is that loose you need to spend money on some new bushings not a disco.

Other than the lockers, this was one of the main reasons I got a Rubi, the sway bars rock especially when going over logs in the swamp at an angle that isn't perpendicular. The vehicle remainds very level even with a great deal of suspension travel.

I'm not very install savvy, so having them come from the factory (and under warranty from Jeep) was high on my value list, but likely relatively unimportant to most of the master installer/technicians on this forum. Sounds like you can add an edisco aftermarket somewhat easily.

Yep, the disconnect from the axle end which is just a pin, then the entire sway bar mounts up to the frame on a little pin like thing. Here, heres mine.

I got the poly performance (synergy) longer front links with disco kit - works great (had a set of Teraflex installed for about an hour but wasnt happy with the quality and freeplay in the bushes so pulled them out again - I believe they now use different bushes).



And heres the storage pin up on the frame for when disconnected:



Only thing you have to be careful about with the JKS is the pin on the sway bar end sticks out a fair way so the bar must be kept close to level when disconnected (not lifted right up) or the pin can foul on the inner edge of the tyre.

The older style JKS ones had the two pins to remove the inner section (same as the first ones in this thread) leaving the ends still attached. Had a guy down here with a set like that and the lower section slowly rotated til it pointed forward and jammed up on the tierod stopping him from turning...

just wanted to poke my head in here again, I did get the jks quicker disconnects from northridge Northridge4x4 Jeep Parts: Disconnects but that kit is literally just the disconnects and new pins. it does not come with extra mounting hardware to connect the sway bar to the frame when not attached to the axle. super easy to use, but i do feel like the northridge kits are often not the same as what other companies are selling (much like the old man emu kit was just the shocks and coils, and not the track relocation bar or spacers or anything). the jks are good, although i cant get the damn nut to lock securing the length. wicked easy to take on and off though, so cant complain too much, im just afraid I'm going to break em.
