JKS quicker anti-sway bar disconnects

Got my JKS quicker anti-sway bar disconnects installed tonight. Where is the best place to install the storage pins?

You'll need a tap and die set to mount them to the frame when disconnected. Currently I hold everything up and out of the way with bungee cords..

I know, I have a tap. Just wondering where the best place was to put it.

Drill and tap the hole on the frame rail toward the front. I thought the instructions made a reference as to where the proper location should be. Putting the pin there makes it so you have to swing the sway bar up a bit so it is out of the way as much as it can be. Do a visual and see where it is best fit.

The directions only said to mount it where it won't rub while flexing. I guess I can see with the fork lift here at work.

I don't know if the JKS QDs are the same as my old Teraflex QDs were in this regard but the stud has to be mounted high on the frame, as close to the top as possible. I didn't read the Teraflex instructions closely enough and instead, mounted the stud dead-center and the tires were able to push both clips out of their holders when disconnected. I went through a half-dozen clips before I figured out what was happening.

Don't the instructions indicate where to mount the studs?

Mount it just under the anti-sway bar where it goes thru the frame.

That was a bunch of information coming at you all at once. You wont need the fork lift because the problem is when the tires are stuffed into the wheel well that they may hit. As Jerry says, mount them up as high as you can so the sway bar is up and out of the way.

when i mounted mine, i took the sway bar pushed it all the way up till it hit the inner fender, lowered it a 1/2" swung the discos up and where they landed on the frame is where i drilled and tapped the hole for the holders, i also checked for rubbing issiues by turning the tires all the way from left to right... havent had any problems even at full flex......dont forget to grease those new discos....

OMG, the same thing is happening with me and my TeraFlex QDs! I only get one outing per clip on the drivers side. I really like the clip design of the JKS (the rest of it looks high quality as well).
