I'd love to know if your sway bars are torqued less when the Jeep is just sitting level on all fours. Since my lift, the sway bars are turned up at quite an angle. I'm not sure how this affects my articulation when wheeling, but I figure it must be pretty limiting.

Okay guys the bwoody performance swaybar links and JBA upper control arms are in and upon initial review this thing handles phenomenally. Stiffer suspension tighter steering and it just really handles perfect.

No more squeaks normal rattles no more noises

Definitely made me love this cherokee KK even more!

As requested.

I ended up posting a thread about this to see what everyone thought the problem could be.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f292/...stall-1520265/

I sent those pictures into the dealership and they determined that the CV's were 'alright' and shouldn't cause much of an issue. They thought it wasn't a big enough deal that they ended up replacing both of mine under warranty even though I had a lift in.

Can you send me a link on Bwoody's site where you got these swaybar links?


I am going to be buying the JBA UCA's and would like to order these as well.

How come you didn't get disconnects from JBA for the front? Besides being beefier I don't really see the advantage. Stock ones shouldn't have been flexing at all and if they were they would just snap.

The advantage was my body roll and the fact that there was excess strain on the sways.

The disconnect I have heard there were issues with so I steered clear.

Did you have to do an alignment when you installed the ones in the front? Does it mess with that stuff?

I did an alignment because of the control arms not sure if doing just the sways would be necessary .
