HamiltonLJ QDs on the front the way they mount will make up for the bends in the stock ones! Believe it or not with the rear swaybar disconnected my jeep scored 40 points less on the RTI ramp!

Front, disconnecting the rear adversely impacts the performance of your Jeep on off-camber terra.

could i get another set and have QD's on the front and rear, or are they diffrent sway bar links or something? Which is the best to have them able to be unhooked on, front or rear?
Disconnecting the front greatly improves the articulation of your Jeep. By keeping all tires on the ground, you maintain traction. If you don't have a locker, raising a tire will result in a loss of traction for that particular axle. For the front and rear, you can actually install a antisway torsion bar that will flex somewhat - so you don't have to disconnect at all. Do a search on the Currie Antirock antiswaybar, front and rear.

Does anyone know the stock gearing on a 1997 TJ Wrangler Sahara edition?
My 1998 Sahara came from the factory with 3.07 gearing.

And as i was reading the owners manual today, it states to never use snow chains on the Sahara TJ's Why is this?

-Thanks
There may a factory concern for fender clearance in stock Jeeps using chains. Lifted Jeeps not so much.

sublimemaze what about the extended/QD links being strait, and the only strait links on the car now are on the rear?

distortedtj Front...no need to disco the rear.

Gearing will be either 3.55 or 3.73. Take a look at the rear diff cover at the 9o'clock position...there "should" be a metal tag held on by the diff cover bolts..the gear ratio is stamped into the tag.

Sway bar disconnects

Im in the process of installing a 2 inch spacer and shock lift kit, and it came with a set of quick disconnect sway bar links. it only came with two, do they go on the front or the rear?

could i get another set and have QD's on the front and rear, or are they diffrent sway bar links or something? Which is the best to have them able to be unhooked on, front or rear?

I also have some other quick questions
