Front Sway Bar and Links

Today I was crawling around underneath the TJ and noticed that my front sway bar is crooked and I do not have the driver's side sway bar link whatsoever. Now I'm thinking is it better to upgrade with quick disconnects or buy stock replacements? Also seeing the price of a new sway bar, could a buy a used one or is it better off to buy a new one?

Yes it is, but if I am going to replace my swaybar I will replace it with a Currie.

I take back my previous statement. I found one on Rusty's Offroad for $289. The only question i have about it is do you still use the links or are they eliminated completely?

They Currie Antirock eliminates the need for swabay disconnects. The factory swaybar and links will all be replaced.

You will feel a little more "sway" but it's not anywhere near as bad as no sway bar at all. I've got mine set in the middle and am happy with it. Feels great on and off-road. It's also really nice not having to get out to disconnect and then clean mud and junk off to reconnect for the drive home!

that's crazy pricey oh my gosh! looks cool but what about the quick disconnects. i saw some for 50 bucks. those work alright? or what if you bought stock swaybar links and put a bolt with a pin in where the normal bolt goes. if you wanna disconnect just pull the pin and the bolt out! bam, that work?

With the driver's side missing now, you effectively have the swaybar disconnected already.

Both sides have to be connected for a swaybar to work.

A Currie or a new link will get it working again.

I'm feeling like I might make my own if it sounds that easy what size pipe did you use?
