What am I missing....

Starting to put my 4" lift on today and for some reason I can not get the sway bars off. Both bolts are out..what I am doing wrong? Thanks. Here is a pic to get an idea.

If you have the bolts on both sides of the frame that connect the sway bar out and still no go, then try some penetrating oil and a dead blow hammer. Personally, I still have my sway bar hooked up with my 4" lift. I did remove the from and rear track bars though to soften up the ride. If you remove the sway bar also, you may get a lot of body roll in turns.

you said "both" bolts are out, did you mean both bolts on the sway bar links (4 total), or just the bolts that connect the links to the sway bar (2 total). If you've still got the bottom bolts in the links down at the axle, it will probably be easier to remove if you pull those out too. After that, penetrating oil, and a big hammer. Personally, I'd pull the whole dang thing off of there and throw it over the hill. You don't really need it on the YJ, but I would recommend leaving the track bar in place. I pulled my rear track bar, front sway bar, and front track bar on mine, but ended up putting the front track back on, that was a bit too much sway for me, but you should be alright with just losing the sway bar.
