Hey guys and gals,
It has come to our attention that some of you have been running into issues with the length of your Flex Connects. If your previous sway bar links measured greater than 9 ¾” and you’re running into issues with droop, please contact JKS Tech Support at 517-278-1226, we have a solution for you!
If you are interested in a Flex Connect and have a suspension kit with extreme droop and your link ends measure greater than 9 ¾” just hang in there, a longer link is in the works!
When we rolled out the Flex Connect, we started with a length that would fit the largest amount of customer’s vehicles. At 9 ¾” the link is still a full 7” longer than stock! The reason for that length is that it is the shortest we could create the product and still have the shaft travel we wanted, hence the 2” lift minimum.
A 9 ¾” length fit every conventional 2-5” kit we tested, but we were obviously not able to test it on every application. No one had attempted a product like this before, and as we are now learning there are a few kits out there that are that are still considered low lift short arm kits that allow extreme droop. While we have tested the kit with some long arm kits and had no issues, we hadn’t anticipated what the Flex Connect would do with these more extreme short arm kits where the wheels not only travels down, but travels back during extreme droop, requiring even longer links than our math had predicted.
We pride ourselves in making products that work, and we want a product as exciting as the Flex Connect to be applicable to as wide of a range of Jeeps as possible, so stay tuned for more variants of the Flex Connect, including a “master pack” with everything included in one kit, a longer link kit (which we’ve discussed), a disconnect Flex Connect as well as a couple of possible longer travel link variants.
Our #1 concern is customer satisfaction and again, if you are one of the customers above who have purchased a Flex Connect and are running into issues due to the length of the link, get a hold of us ASAP and we will take care of you.
