this might be a problem..

So I'm out riding around in the jeep looking for things to flex my new 2.5" lift on when I notice something that can't be normal

Nice looks like your sway bar link. Time for upgrade

That's just your antiswaybar link which is not a big deal and it's easily replaced. As J10 suggests, just upgrade both links to a pair of quick disconnect links from someone like JKS which I believe are less expensive than the factory links are anyway.

Easy peesy. Hardware store has all the stuff you need also.

Just did mine. I needed a pitman arm puller to get the ball out of the sway bar.

Only problem I see there is finding the money for the new part, and the time to install it

That's easily replaced. If you want to stay stock(ish) rather than disco's, it's about $40 at O'Rileys Auto.

Mines stock at the moment, but since I have open diffs I'm thinking of getting a set of the disco's for mine

That spring is for a 2.5" lift?

Oops, wandered into the TJ section - guess TJ 2.5" springs are bigger then JK 2.5" springs...

Cost me $33 at Autozone on Monday and I'm in the NE where everything is ridiculously expensive. Borrowed the puller from Autozone.
