  • Remove or not to remove sway bar links???

    That is the qUestion. ... i hear alt of people remove them to get better flex from stock suspension. I have 3" coil spring spacers an wanting a little more flex setting how i can't afford a big suspension lift kit right now. Ideas tips or tricks anyone? ?????????

    On a jeep with front coils, yes remove them with quick disconnects for trail use only. You will get awesome flex out of the front end. Be sure to reconnect when you drive on the road, it will be dangerous and very loose in the front.

      I should have added also, if you are already lifted and still have stock brake lines, you may flex to much and damage them. You would need longer lines or do the cheap fix and unbolt from the frame and bend downward, still they may be too short. Something you need to check before wheeling.

            Yes I have a big lift. I disconnect every run to flex more and keep the body level. I reconnect them to drive on the street. It is much safer. I only have a front away bar and not a rear in my case as with my lift I have a trianglated 3 link. But my fronts are in and out all the time. I have the JKS brand

                Yes bump stops are still there. You would only replace them if you change your lift height , even then some people don't. Bump stops control the upward travel distance of your tires. Another words the stops bottom out before your tire goes thru fender lol. No need to change if you are just doing disconnects.

                    I run the currie anti-rock up front on the loose setting. I have no rear sway bar, as I took it off when I put a new axle under the rear end.
                    I am running a 3.5 inch list kit with the currie adjustable control arms on the upper and lowers.
                    I get massive flex off-road and love the way it handles.
                    I do get lots of sway on the road, but do not drive it as much as I use to on the road.
