Last week I bought a set of RE Gen II Sway Bar Disc's, in the installation inst's it said to mount the pin for the SB link up next to the shock tower. While I was checking fit, before drilling any holes I realized that in order to get the link up to this location you have to let the sway bar drop and wrestle it around to get it in position. Not a good design.
So I relocated the pin to the frame just ahead of the sway bar in a slot that already exists. It much easier to attach the link there because you just rotate it forward and clip it on.

BTW, after installing the new Links the Jeep has more road feel transmitted up to the steering wheel. I think its because the upper portion of the link has no rubber bushing. The extra feeling is not bothersome at all and the front end actually feels tighter because of it.
These were worth their money in my opinion.

Great info thanks.... I have the old style, although they are always disco'd as for what ever reason it drivers better that way.

i always thought that you would mount them too the frame anyway. i think thats what JKS says to do.

the RE gen II discos are great.

Happy 4th everybody!!!!! I was planning on mounting mine in the same place so I could go wheeling this week and try them out, but how did you get/tighten the nuts down? I was looking and there is no place to insert an open wrench? Any ideas would be great!!!

Here are dwgs of what I did.
I had to grind a edge of the bolt and washer to get it through the slot. I then put a pry bar against the washers with as much pressure as I could to not allow the bolt to spin. I then used channel-locks with a rag stuffed in the jaw to minimize damage to plating on the RE Pin and tightened the piss out of it. I used lock-tite supplied in the kit to prevent it from backing off.
I hope this helps.
