sway disconnect
 
Is there any effect on the push button sway bar disconnect when you add a 4in lift?

No, it will still operate, same as it does now. But make sure when you replace the links that you set them to the correct length or you'll cause them to U when you flex.

Yep.

That just happened to me Saturday. :facepalm: I should have just manually disconnected my links by pulling the pins and not had to worry about it.

As long as you replace the OEM links to bring the angle of the sway bar back to stock you'll be fine. Ideally you'll go with some quick disconnect links so you don't have to worry about it.

I like to just e-disco when doing light stuff, and I'll now manually disconnect when doing moderate wheeling or harder. I didn't think the course 3 at Jeep Beach would be enough to flex them past their limit.

It sheared off against the drag link when coming back to normal stance.

I had to ride home with the sway bar locked forward. :hide: I have a replacement in transit and should be here Friday. Rock Krawler was outstanding in providing customer service. They didn't even charge me for my mistake.

Ouch Kramer!
This is exactly what I do- edisco for light stuff, manually dis-connect for the rough stuff. You just can't rely on the button so always be prepared to go manual.

There was a discussion about this in another thread....if you set the link lengths so the sway bar is parallel with the ground, you'll snap the links....you want to set the length so the sway bar is angled up about 8-12*.

Yep, I knew I was flirting with the possibility of flipping the sway bar. Just being lazy I guess. I'll adjust mine up a little and just manually disconnect from now on.
