Bigstonz Swain, NY- 500 people, small ski area, post office, 1 tavern. Swells to 4 bar/restaurants in winter.
JKS discos work great. Truth be told, I don't find the need to disco that much.

Body roll is dangerous at high speeds,hell it's dangerous at any speed in the event of a bad situation,but I keep to the gravels and fishing trails.Got a DD for hiway stuff.Thanks.

baja Question answered thank you,That is a good deal,but I'll end up popping those as well.My concern was the front end,structual damage.Cali is alot faster paced I imagine than a town of 2500,I've got a DD anyways.Thanx again.

No it won't hurt your Jeep by having them disconnected which is pretty much what you've got with one broken end like in the pic. I'd take at least the broken one off so doesn't flop around. You'll notice more body roll disconnected and it's definitely less safe at greater speeds and could lead to a roll type situation if you had to swerve at speed. As mentioned you can upgrade with some nice disconnects, especially if you do much offroading and disconnect your swaybar, they come in very handy . . . or you can find someone that lifted their Jeep and still has the stockers hanging around and pick them up cheap . . . $hit, I have a set off my 06 with maybe a year on them . . . 20 bucks plus shipping?!?!
10-27-2009 10:31 PM
baja Ok,then they are of a safety issue correct?
10-27-2009 10:21 PM
jdub2k5 the second image I posted, the cotter pin removes allowing for more flex offroading..

if your lifted stock ones will not work

those ran me 150 but are absolutely need... and they are available in less extreme versions for much cheaper

sway bar links

My swaybar links have popped out of their sockets,can I just weld them back in(ball to socket)?They are the stockers on a 01 tj.Everything I've read says this is a no-no running without swaybars,now am I doing damage to my frontend without them hooked up,or is it a safety issue?Am I overthinking this?Looks like I could weld them easy enough,but do they need to articulate also?Don't want any binding.Thanx.
