Arrow Jks swaybar disconnects

Hey everyone i have the jks sway bar disconnects installed in my jeep and i was wondering if anyone has a lil trouble when reconnecting the dicsonnect after youve takin it off. i can slide it off no problem but when i got to reconnect them i use a mallet to tap it in and so oil helps to. Is this normal? Also how do you guys keep them out of the way when there disconnected and your offroadin. thanx

Make sure the jeep is as close to level as possible and they will slide on easy.

Find the most level ground like said above. Also if you need it, have somebody stand on a side step or similar and grab the roll bar and sway the jeep back and forth, you will be able to slide it on easier.

U can use a bungee cord or zip tie... swing them up parallel to the sway bar and zip tie or bungee them to the sway bar. Just be sure your tire won't hit them. Or u can use the posts they supplied to mount them out of the way. I drilled my frame to mount the posts. when I disconnect, I simply attach them to the posts. Either way works.

Level ground and you will not have a problem and bungee cords or zip ties will fix the problem.

do you have problems with getting both of them on? Or just one side? Maybe you have one link adjusted out more than the other. Or they could both be adjusted out too far.

The disconnects come with a pin set that bolts to the frame... Sounds like the PO didn't install them. You can tie them up out of the way (which ever method works best for you), or you could order the small parts direct from JKS to get the mounting pins for the frame rails...

Like previous posts, the disco's come with a pin that is supposed to be drilled and threaded into the frame so you can mount them to this pin when you are disconnected. Also, if the Jeep is on level ground the links are adjustable so they should slide on and off easily from each side. At times you may need to lift up on the bumper a little bit to get the pins to slide in easily. It sounds to me like yours are way out of adjustment which is why they are not easy to do.

sway bar problems

My sway bar is rubbing against my frame and cutting a hole in the frame. I'm sure that this isn't normal, so what can I do to fix the problem? It slides back and forth. Not too easy but if you pull hard enough you can move it. Every now and then when i'm driving, I can hear it rubbing when I hit a bump so I have to stop and move it back to center position.

Im not 100% sure.... but I would think you should be able to loosen the bolts on the frame where the swaybar pivots and slide it back over. After putting on my endlinks, I discovered my sway bar looks bent on the driver side.

I had the same problem. Mine would just barely not line up. So just have someone sit in the jeep or pull up on the bumper just enough to get the pin to line up.

Make sure that your axle is centered under the Jeep first of all... Then replace the bushings for your sway bar if they are too loose. If all else fails you can get a set of these to help "lock" your sway bar into position...
