jbone303 i know i ran a 2 in BB and didn't chande athing. i would think the body lift would have nothing to to with anything because the sway bar mounts to the frame an axles. the stock links should work your just rotating your sway bars down. I'm no mechanic but thats what i would think. I dint think the ones i have will or should work. cuz if there too long then that put the sway bar up not down. Dont get them from the stealership tho. I did cuz the parts store only had one so i got that one and one from the dealership. Only diff in them was the price I think i paid thirty for one at the parts store and 60 from the stealership. but it did have a mopar sticker in it.

03IncaRubi So will the 4 inch sway links work for my 2.25" lift? Would the 4 inches be too much for the lift I have? I was just curious, i'm not exactly sure how it works if you would need the exact height of the lift you have or can you have a little more? Thanks!

03IncaRubi Would the ones from a 4 inch lift work? Let me know what you would want for them jbone. If they will work for me and fix the problem then I am very interested! How much do you want for them, I'm interested. Thanks a lot!

jbone303 i have a set from a 4 in lift you can have dirt cheep. I have front and rear brand new

03IncaRubi It is the part where the rubber bushing mounts to the frame. The one on the passenger sight completely tore apart, and the driver side one is wearing. I can see a small seam worn in the middle of the rubber on that side.
So do I need a 2" longer one since I raised it 2.25", or would a new stock one be alright. Also, if I do need longer ones, where can I find them? I have been looking everywhere and can't seem to find them. Thanks a lot!

4Jeepn Is it the bushing mounted to the frame or the one on the drop link to the axle that is going?

You can get new longer ones figure 100 bucks.

You can also run without them, but the jeep will handle like jello.

jbone303 i put a 2 in BB and didn't have a problem with the stock length but i did replace them with a good set of discos tho. it was worth the investment.

Sway bar/link problem after lift?

I have a 2003 Jeep wrangler Rubicon. I currently have instlled a 2.25" spacer lift with shocks and a JKS 1.25" body lift as well for a total of 3.5" lift. I have noticed a kind of creak/popping sound under the front of my jeep shortly after I put the lift and tires on. Upon further inspection I noticed that it was the sway bar/links that seemed to have come apart from the bushing and are sliding up and down when flexed on a hill or turned while steering.
Originally I just thought I would just get some new stock ones to replace them, but now i'm thinking maybe i'll need longer ones? This is my daily driver and doesn't see off road much if at all.
What do you suggest I do? I just want to make sure I make the right decision before buying anything else! Thanks a lot!
