Question on JKS quick disconnects

Buddy gave me a set of JKS quick discos but I think it's the shortest version and I have a 3" lift.

Just went out and measured looks like they are like 1/2" smaller on full spread than my sway bar links which used to be the rear sway bar links.

My question: I often hear that the sway bar needs to be parallel to the ground that it helps...well if I install these JKS quick discos it will no longer be parallel to the ground it will have a light angle downwards is this going to matter to the stability of the Jeep on the Highway?

Several years ago I bought my used JKU. It was already lifted (~ 2 inches) and I found the previous owner had done a poor job. Long story short, a sway bar link slightly below horizontal caused some major problems off road.

I documented it here it you'd like more details: https://www.wranglerforum.com/f274/wo...le-135460.html

Thanks for the reply....as of right now with an angle meter my sway bar is up a bit 3 degrees....I guess using this JKS would bring it -3 degrees...here is a picture...



You can see from the picture that my sway bar is not paralleled yet though almost there..I have no problems on the freeway going 75. What do you think can I install this JKS?

I always disconnect when offroad. And thanks I'll check it out.

I disconnect for trail rides but short jaunts I don't. The problem I had was that after hitting a bump that flexed the front end, the shorter sway bar links became inverted allowing the sway bar to bind on the axle.

To answer your question, no I don't think you'll have any problems on the freeway but any bumps or flexing and you're risking problems.

You can order the longer upper half of the links thru jks.
