The YJ sway bar link isn't mounted quite like the TJ's. You could do a clevis conversion on the upper mount, but it leaves the link on the lower mount, and that is just a PITA. TJ's can use the clevis on the lower mount and swing the swaybar and disco'd link up and out of the way, the YJ link stays on the bottom, and if you have an extended link from a lift kit and a lot of flex it can be problematic to just zip-tie it to the axle. Rough Country sells some adjustable quick disconnects for a reasonable price and you can get them on EBay even cheaper, but IMHO, you do want to either take the sway bar off completely or get a good set of QD's rather than try to modify the stock link.

When I put in my lift, I started without the rear track bar and experimented with a disconnected front trackbar and disconnected sway bar. I wasn't happy with the handling without the front panhard or sway bar, but you may not mind the "boat" sensation. No harm in experimenting.

Exactly... It doesn't cost anything to take parts off. Try it for a while and decide for yourself.

FWIW I don't run the sway bar or rear trac bar on mine and don't mind how it feels, it still handles better than any of the CJ5s I've owned.

yea, my sisters jeep is very similar...she's got a 90 yj with a 4" spring lift, virtually no flex, no lockers, and 4wd is busted right now...and yes, she runs 33's just fine, the do rub the back fender flares a little but with a tiny bit of trimming they won't. and we are soon removing the sway bar and prolly track bar

add a body lift and you will not have any rubbing at all nor will you need to extend the bump stops.
