Is it possible

Is it possible to remove the front sway bar links without use of a T55 Torx bit? On a second thought, will I need the use of this T-55 again while installing a 3.5" IRO lift? If I recall correctly I remember reading a post that said there's a t-55 for the rear trackbar...haven't gotten there yet.

I seriously hate these bits...a while ago I had the same problem when replacing my driver's side fender so I ran and got a set...can you guess the biggest size bit? Correct, it's T-50!!!

I worked at a tool store when I got the jeep. But to save dough I got my torx bits from harbor freight for $10. When installing my lift I removed all old torx bolts. Took them to hardware store and got hex head replacements. Front lower control arm caster bolts can be had at rock auto for $20 with hex head.

I ended up running to O'Reilly's anyways. With my luck I figured I'd need it again. Got ahold of my sister, she let me use her 'Yota. Clutch.
