I have a 2006 X and the top of the sway bar links does not pivot. It is bolted straight into the sway bar. Have any of y'all run into this, and is there a homemade mod so I can use these quick discos?

I'm fairly new to this so go easy on me. What do you do with the link once you disconnect it? I take it you don't take it completely out. Can you swing the sway bar upward far enough so the link is out of the way so it won't interfere with anything flexing?

you can rest it on the spring perch (above spring) or you can lash it up there with a bungie cord.

I grease the main pin, to stop some annoying sqeaking

Came across this set up while doing some "google shopping" Any thoughts, experience with these?

Seems really simple, and for the price not a bad idea..i do worry about the quality of that pin tho...Could always replace it with something stronger, better for wear.

And i'm guessing part# 1129 is for 0-2.5" of lift?

Jeeperz Creepers states that...but the RC site wasn't that specific

Most people don't disconnect the rear. Unless you are doing some extreme stuff, I wouldn't worry about it.

Hello mister fox, if I was you I would just get extend links pretty no horrible priced and a little safer in my opinion or you could leave them, I have read that you really dont have to worry till 3 inches plus.

but here is JKS rear links
JKS Manufacturing 2942 - JKS Manufacturing Rear Adjustable End Links for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited with 2.5-6" Lift - Quadratec

I was going to do this at some point but after disconnecting them several times over the last couple of months I'm not interested anymore. I have an 18mm box wrench and a ratchet with a T55 torx bit - it takes around 30 seconds to a minute per side to disconnect the factory links.

anyone know if these will in fact connect at factory height, I am not doing my lift for a while and need new links now.. I would like to just run with these but Im not sure if they will actually work. I cant imagine a reason they wouldnt connect properly...

new idea add a rubber washer between two grade 8 washers then push them against the head of the clevis pin the rubber washer should absorb the road shock causing the clevis pin to last longer this is just a theory im going to test

I ditched the clevis idea and spent $19 on a pair RE axle bullets. I put pictures of my disconnects here: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f322/di...te-474673.html
