Disconnected my sway bar for the first time

I got off work today and decided to disconnect my sway bar for the first time. Thanks to you guys on this forum, I had a good spot to read up on it.

I pulled my car hauler trailer out and put one ramp down on the side for a good place to put my driver side wheel atop to check my "articulation". Hehe, I love sounding professional.

I disconnected them, flipped the sway bar links up and rested them above my shocks. Then, I drove one wheel up on the trailer ramp. To my surprise, it went all the way up. So, I had one wheel on top of the trailer and one soundly on the ground.

It worked! My neighbors were looking at me like I was a nutjob! LOL. Then, I dove it back down, reconnected them and everything was fine.

That's not bad for a stock '06 Wrangler X? Or is that about normal?

Now, I plan on ordering some JKS sway bar disconnects. But, I also plan on buying an suspension kit. Are these disconnects standard with a 4" kit? I don't want to buy two pair.

Thanks in advance guys!

Yes, nothing like having the neighbors think your a nutz.... Sound about right as far as flex for a stock jeep. Some kits come with new disco's some don't.

Get the JKS Quicker Disconnects for a 2" to 6" lift. That's what I have and I love them. They're real easy to install and great to use.

sounds about right, stock jeeps can flex pretty good. heres mine with just a coil spacer and longer shocks. not too bad for stock coils

do you mean the 2.5"-6" disconnects?
they are part of my actual order (UPS tracker says it´s still on NY airport).
how do you fasten the end links when they are disconnected?
i think without a good solution for that they just hang around.

do you have pics?

Yeah, those. They come with a place to hook them into the frame when disconnected. I use a bungee cord around the front instead because I'm not lifted as high as I want and it would change the position of the place to fasten them.

I can take some pictures if you'd like. They're one of my favorite purchases so far.

Zip ties or those little straps that come with your Jeep work real well.
