Swaybar links Question

Im in the process of doing a 2.5 lift on my JKU and I was wondering what alot of you guys use with the 2.5 lift as far as front and rear sway bar links?
I heard you can use stock rears up in the front and what do you use for the rears?

I have 2.5 inches with my RK 1.5" coils. I moved my stock rear sway bar links up front and added these in the rear.JKS Manufacturing 2943 - JKS Manufacturing Adjustable End Links for 07-15 Jeepģ Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK with 0-6" Lift - Quadratec

They require cutting but not difficult at all. They are perfect.

What do you mean cutting? What are you cutting and what did you use to cut?

you need to cut the center threaded rod to size. It comes with directions how to measure and a hacksaw worked for me.

Yes, you cut the center threaded rod. I used an inexpensive cutting tool from Harbor Freight.

Love the ride and I wouldn't change a thing.

Amen.

Amen.

Amen.

These were the only ones I could get to fit my OME coil lift. Your goal is the have the sway bar arm perfectly horizontal when your Jeep is perfectly horizontal.

Measure twice, cut once!

I just put a rear set on yesterday then swapped the rears to the front.

Super easy. Hacksaw worked great. Use a grinder of file to square the ends.

You can dial in the perfect angle ( -3* rear )

Just take your time.
