Sway bar links/disconnects

Can someone tell me the difference and do I need new ones for a 2" lift?



Plan is to run 2" coils with .75" spacers in the front. Will my stock sway bar links fit?

First off, 2" plus .75" is nearly a 3" lift... the answer isn't cut and dried....
I'm running stock links w a 3 " lift w no issues on my 99% street use 04 but most folks would suggest longer than stock

Rear should be fine although longer ones are really cheap. Front, if you are doing disconnects then get them for a 2" lift. Most will be adjustable between 2" and 4" of suspension lift. If you aren't doing disconnects then you will probably be fine as you won't be articulating enough to cause an issue.

Just to be sure I understand this correctly, the sway bar disconnects are only needed if I go off-roading and plan to "disconnect" my sway bar end links regularly?


If I just plan on driving in the streets, then I don't need diconnects, correct?

Although, if you do plan on lifting, or joining the cool kid club, a set of JKS disco's are not that much more than a set of Mopar oem links.

Thanks all.

Since I don't plan on off-roading, think I'll try and stick with my stock sway bar links for now (assuming they will fit, which according to you guys they should).


I'll keep the JKS ones in mind if I decide to switch down the road.

This pic is from the side to show the angle of the joint at the sway bar....

Absolutely a non issue on road...
