JKS Diconnects Problem

Hey guys so I got my Cherokee probably around 3 months ago and when I got around to wheelin it for the first time I went to unhook my disconnects and my passenger side disconnect wont come off because there's not enough clearance between it and the steering stabilizer bracket. I was wondering if any of you guys have seen this before and seen why it's happened and an easy fix for it. I would rather not grind it down but if that's all I got then that's what I'll do.

The first thing I would do is bend the bracket that holds the sway bar disco away from the SS. A BFH or a pry bar should do the trick.

That was my main thought. It looks pretty cocked in so I think I might straighten it up.

I'm 99% sure that will solve the problem. If it doesn't post back in this thread and we can find another solution.

You have a bent swaybar endlink bracket on the axle. Like mentioned, straighten it and you should have no issues.
