When removing front sway bar end links on a tj can I just unbolt them from the sway bar and flex out the suspension (by driving it) or do I really need a ball joint tool to get them out?

If you have stock links the ball joint is connected to the swaybar with a tapered bolt. You have to do a little work to get it out. There are plenty of threads in TJ Tech that discuss. Go there, search and read.

Why are you removing the links? Driving a TJ at speed on the road without the swaybar connected not a great idea.

Yeah, I read everything from use ball joint tool to use a big hammer. It just seems that if you unbolt the link from the swaybar and let the suspension sag, the weight if the droop would pull it apart.
My front drivers side link flexes at the top bushing where it connects to the swaybar and needs to be replaced. I think I'm going to get my hands on some jks disconnects.

The tapered bolt is in there tight and remember the bar will move as the suspension cycles so the arms will just come down. You'll separate the ball and socket well before you pull the tapered bolt out.

Well that makes sense. Thanks. I guess I'm renting the tool then. Maybe while I have it I'll finally replace my leaky steering box that's sitting in my garage!
Thanks again.

Does anyone have experience with this type of swaybar disconnect? Or can anyone tell me what brand they are. I've noticed that most have the pin location as the lower mount, while this is just above, disconnecting the link bar itself. Just curious if there's a difference?
Thanks.

Thanks.
Looks like a stock link modified into a disco link.

Stock links have a ball and socket joint on one end.

The closest I could find is like and older version of rough country or skyjacker. Either way, they didn't cost me anything so they are better than my broken stock ones. Plus, I'll have some fun with them. Don't know why it posted this picture. I had one with the headlights off. You could see my poser flex better. I was running out of daylight.
