So I'm out riding around in the jeep looking for things to flex my new 2.5" lift on when I notice something that can't be normal

Nice looks like your sway bar link. Time for upgrade

That's just your antiswaybar link which is not a big deal and it's easily replaced. As J10 suggests, just upgrade both links to a pair of quick disconnect links from someone like JKS which I believe are less expensive than the factory links are anyway.

Yep thats what mine looked like too. Nice easy upgrade and relatively inexpensive

Easy peesy. Hardware store has all the stuff you need also.

Forum member JWM1986 is selling a set of JKS discos.... Check the for sale section...;)

Just did mine. I needed a pitman arm puller to get the ball out of the sway bar.

Only problem I see there is finding the money for the new part, and the time to install it :)

That's easily replaced. If you want to stay stock(ish) rather than disco's, it's about $40 at O'Rileys Auto.

Mines stock at the moment, but since I have open diffs I'm thinking of getting a set of the disco's for mine :)

That spring is for a 2.5" lift?
Oops, wandered into the TJ section - guess TJ 2.5" springs are bigger then JK 2.5" springs...

Cost me $33 at Autozone on Monday and I'm in the NE where everything is ridiculously expensive. Borrowed the puller from Autozone.
