Okay guys, I have a 2.5in suspension lift and a 1.25BL. Rough country has some quick discos that fit a lift from 2.5 to 3.25, does that just apply to the suspension lift? Or do I need to get a bigger size?

Where do the sway bar links attach? One end attaches to the axle, the other end attaches to the sway bar, which is bolted to the frame via the retention bushings. Therefore, the height of the body relative to the frame has no bearing at all on sway bar link length.

Sway bar links or quick discos are not related to body lifts. Just the amount of suspension lift

Okay okay okay... So the front sway bar is attached to the frame, so the 2.5-3.25in quick discos will fit? Right?

Of course they'll fit. The sway bar rotates in the retention bushings so they'd fit even if they were far too long or too short.

Another question you should be asking yourself is, "why does the length of the link matter?" and "what determines that?"

Details details.

Geometry, your sway bar functions in a twisting motion so you want to keep the sway bar ends at a 90 degree angle to the sway bar links allowing the axle load to produce a linear twisting load on the sway bar.
Get to far from 90 degrees and your applying more force to the sway bar mounts than the bar and binding the suspension.

What should be discussed here as well is why you should bypass disconnects altogether. ;) Take that money for the discos......put it aside and save up for an Antirock or ORO swayloc.

Bingo. Another way to measure it is the swaybar should be angled slightly upward at 10 degrees +/- 5 degrees from flat, level ground.

I agree with this. While I don't resent my disco's, I really wish I had a nice Antirock under there right now. Oh well, you live and you learn I guess. I'll just sell them down the road once I finally get an Antirock.

Well I happened to get a set of skyjacker double discos for free and was looking at installing them. Money is tight and while the anti-rock is awesome not possible right now. I'm thinking the discos are too short for my lift though so I will do some angle measuring to figure it out.
