JKS Quicker Disconnect Install Question

So I just received my JKS Quicker Disconnects and have a question. Is an alignment necessary after the install? This is my first time doing my own work to suspension parts by myself.

Thanks.

I don't know anything about those, but assuming you don't mess with anything other than the links themselves, it won't affect your alignment at all. Just make sure you do it on level ground and that they're the same length.

Thanks. That was my thought, but started second guessing myself.

no alignment is not required after doing anything to the swaybar, but as mentioned do it on level ground and be sure that it is level +/- 5 degrees

I also ordered the teraflex swaybar storage kit as I realized with it disconnected theres nowhere to keep it from getting knocked down and going into the tire/wheel/etc

Thanks. I was thinking of going the zip tie route, but something to think about.

It was only $30 or so and I figure that is money well spent for piece of mind of knowing that a zip tie or 2 snapping wont cause my day to end badly.

I use a bungee cord to hold mine up.

I went to Home Depot and bought a 2" wide roll of Velcro. Cut that long and wrap it around your links, sway bar and frame. It holds amazingly well. And when I'm done reconnection everything, they go in the tray in the trunk.
