How hard is it to replace the links????? easy as it looks?
I wish I had the skills/stuff to make my own!!! Thanks for the help again bud!!

I see, either way i wouldn't replace with stock. I find it worthless spending money on something as good as the one you have on now.
Do you have the tools and skills to make your own? They are simple to make, you just need a welder, a vice to bend stuff, a drill and a cutter of some kind (for metal).
4 point what are the new RE ones?
As i said the JKS are the only good ones i know but i will NOT spend 150 or 200 on them.

yeah, I have only been able to find a few stock replacement links.. I don't really have any intention of lifting the Jeep, I just think these things probably need to be replaced, I mean the bushings are seriously flat at the top.. Guess I am going to order something like this;
might just order them from the dealership... how hard is it to replace these? looks like I will need an alan wrench to get the the bottom piece off... a big one at that!

|4point||Tripp, the newer JKS and RE units don't have that problem any more.|

Np man. i havent seen them sell just the bushings yet. Are you planning on lifting it? Most lifts come with sway bar links... Honestly i wouldnt pay 200 bucks for 2 pieces of steel with a removable pin through it but thats just me. I'd rather cut a slice of a garden hose or something like that and use that as a bushing.
And thats the bushing you need right?
Most of the links i see come with the pipe in them.. those are pretty bad since they start rattling when the pin wears out a bit.
such as these

|keetz02||looks like I am going to have to replace the link to get the link bushing??? or can I just buy the bushing??, haven't found one online yet, seem to want to sell the whole stinkin link!

So what i'm getting from this is you need the anti sway bar LINK bushings? not the 2 bushings underneath the "JEEP" plastic by the front of the jeep?
Not these right?

|4point||Front only, and yes that is for a pair. They are the best, first upgrade you can do.|
|05-27-2008 07:15 PM|
|keetz02||did you have to install ones on the back too? was that price for the pair?|
|05-27-2008 06:58 PM|
|4point||I don't recall what I paid for mine, maybe $125|

You could install these.

the rubber piece that is destroyed on mine is at the top of this type of thing (which I think is a stabilizer bar?), but I think this one is on a Cherokee... Attachment 4190
I am just trying to replace the rubber (what is the proper term for that rubber piece?), but how much to quick disconnects go for/how easy is installation?

|keetz02||sorry meant where quick disconnects would go...|

|AzTJ||The ones on the frame? Just get regular rubber ones. And yes, it's that easy, 4 bolts and you are good to go... just don't scratch the grill.|

Sway Bar Bushings
Ok, so the other day I noticed my sway bar bushings were totally squished, for lack of a better word. The top of them look totally rotted.. What tools do I need to replace them, and how hard is it? looks like I just need to undo some bolts, put new bushings in and bolt the stuff back together, but things are rarely as simple as they appear... Also, I have been told/read there are several types of bushings (material they are made of) what type would be the best to use? Thanks!
