I have a front ADDCO and it works with my JKS. There are two ways to bolt it together. One is that you shave the ends of the bar with a grinder, the other is that you bolt it under instead of over.

My front worked fine with my discos

x4 on that. With stock control arms, it makes little or no difference.

I have no front swaybar. I just replaced a link in the rear and the first time I flexed out the rear swaybar itself sheered. Is this because I have no front swaybar?

I haven't had a rear sway bar in years and have had no ill affects. I drive on the expressway every week and being lifted on 33" tires in a vehicle with zero aerodynamics, you're going to get pushed around by the wind regardless. Definitely no flex benefits without one though.

I have run no rear sway bar for about a year now. The reason that I removed it was because of some back yard wheeling. I was attempting to climb a stump with the front discoed and rear bar connected. I wasn't able to get my jeep up the stump because the rear came off the ground just enough to spin and stop forward movement. I then removed the rear sway bar as well as disco-ing the front. Once I did this I was able to climb the same stump without the tires coming off the ground. Now it's possible it was all just luck that I climbed it fine without the rear sway bar, but I tend to think it is more because the sway bar was off. All that to say I haven't been running one since and it's somewhat noticeable on the street, but nothing life threatening; it just means you can't corner like a sports car

So is it ok to run just a rear swaybar or will it snap again?

The OEM bar is tiny. It will snap eventually. If you want to run one, upgrade to a beefier one.
