Your axle end swaybar relocation for OTK

Not sure if this is "advanced" enough or not, but I guess the definition isn't that clear yet either!


Want to see some of your guys mount relocation's, There isnt a lot of space after OTK, I could go off the face of the bucket but I dont think that would be ridgid enough.

Im interested as well.
One method Ive seen is to clearance the stock bracket where needed, then reinforce it with plate

really never had that issue in NY. my XJ never had a sway bar for any inspection and my YJ doesn't either. Hell my YJ the gauges didn't work and half the bulbs were out. but it passed the emissions and that's all they care about down here any more

but if you want to keep your sway bar this is a good option

The black magics are nice, but I ordered the JCRs, they give a little more space for when changing out coils

I have a set of the JCR mounts, hoping to get them on saturday... those black magic mounts look cool though.

this is the steering I have now



the tolerances are definetly tight... I actually lost a tiny bit of radius toward driver because the tie-rod hits the coil bucket...I am contemplating putting a bend in the tube, or maybe a notch and filling it with some solid rod..... decisions decisions

my version of the JCR slightly modded



had to get them up real high, so I went further out, flush with the outer edge of the inner C. I had to make new standoffs from the coil bucket. we added the gusset to tie it in all the way up the inner C. it will act as somewhat of a gusset for the C as well, although it was not intended for that, nor would I rely on that.

I cut mine off then welded it back on a bit higher. works fine with the antirock. have wheeled the snot out of this TJ, setup like this and it never bend or misbehaved in any way. It has a XJ Dana 30 HP under my TJ with a flip kit and Currie steering linkage. Blaine's bracket is sweet, but simply welding the bracket back on higher works The one on the left that I raised has lived this way for the last 3.5 years without any ill effect

Why did you have to get them up higher then they were designed for? Mine are in the mail now.

I am running inverted T steering, the tabs I have on the tie-rod would have hit the sway bar mounts if I ran them the way JCR puts them on.

it wasn't a big deal really, just needed a longer standoff from the coil bucket.

I added that extra gusset behind it for security, I have heard of people bending them, so I made sure that's not really possible.
