Quick Disconnects - Sway Relocation

Hi all,

I tried to search the forum and could not find anything, so sorry if this is a repeat.

Basically i have quick disconnects on my TJ Wrangler and always find it tricky where to put the front sway bar when i have disconnected it?

At the moment i am pulling it forward and cable tieing it to the front bumper. This is not ideal as my approach angle is crap (See photo).

Is there an easier way? I looked up in towards the guard and couldnt really find a place to do it.

Does anyone have photos of their set up once they have disconnected the front sway bar?

Much appreciated

Fraser

I have tried a couple of different locations... this is the ONLY one that I don't contact the links at full stuff....run the swaybar up as high as you can and let the links hang vertical. Make a pin and hang it off the frame close to the coils...

This is the best pic I can show for it....



Here is a quick pic of where the pin is mounted

Look at the top coil spring bracket where it is welded to the frame. You will find a gap in where it is welded to the frame which is an ideal location through which you can pass a ziptie that can be used to secure the antiswaybar in its fully-up position.

The JKS links I got came with posts that mount to the frame. You have to drill and tap a 1/4" hole for the posts but they are very secure there with the same pins used for disconnecting. I'm not sure if they sell them separately, but it may be worth a look or a call to them asking about it.

These are the best pictures I have of them at the moment.

Connected, but showing the post

Yep. That's where I tied mine up until I bought an antirock.

I think i will try this one and use zip ties/bungees to try secure it, my discos look to be home made. Maybe in the future i'll get some JKS ones
