Installing JKS Sway Bar DC's

I picked up a pair of sway bar disconnects tonight. Looked easy enough.

NOT SO. I guess I need to do geometry and measuring of angles.

Anyone have experience with these things? Also, anyone live nearby and willing to help me some night this week? I have beer.

I lost a bolt holding my driver's side lower sway bar, so time is of the essence for me!

Youll be okay driving without it, if its anything similar to my TJ you should bolt the bottom pin into the sway bar mount, then bolt it to the top of the sway bar, then push the end over the pin, and then install the cotter.

May be totally different. Lol

Are they threaded? The only angle would be the sway bar, and as long as its close to parallel at ride height or a tad above it would be okay.
