You can buy stock ones less expensive, but you said the jeep had about a 3" suspension lift so stock ones would not be long enough. They do come with all the bushings and all the hardware it takes to install them. The installation is pretty simple with basic tools.

You only have one front sway bar. Those are the sway bar links and those are what you need to replace if your sway bar feels loose. The bar itself is the piece of metal that these connect too and goes around the front of the grille. I can pretty much guarantee you that your sway bar is fine.

Water Dog Check out these JKS sway bar end links. They are adjustable, so you can get them to fit whatever size lift you have, then fine tune the length. http://www.quadratec.com/products/pr...Sway+Bar&c=127

basically, i'm looking for some inexpensive sway bars. i dont do any offroading. i just want something that will keep my jeep in a straight line when i'm driving 60 mph. does anyone know of some cheaper ones that would be good for highway use?
The swaybar effects body roll and handling more than straightline steering. If you have a hard time keeping straight at 60mph I would look at your trackbar and control arms first.

Big Sarge You will have to get longer than stock if you have aloft. Post up some pics and folks on here can tell you why you have. Focus on the suspension with the pics.

Replacing Sway Bars

i bought my first jeep from a friend of mine. it was already lifted when he bought it, so he isn't sure what it has. i think it is a 3" suspension and 1" body. it wanders on the road very badly and the steering wheel has a lot of play in it. i took it to 2 mechanics to inspect before buying. both said the sway bar links were bad. the sway bar on one side goes in and out like a shock when you press down on the bumper. and both sides move back and forth because the bushings have rotted. i'm not sure what kind of sway bars to get to replace them. can i use factory replacements since its lifted? or do i need to order replacements based on the lift i have? the mechanic that looked at the jeep said he called the local NAPA parts place to get a price on replacements. but i dont know if he was referring to a factory replacement or not. any help would be appreciated.
