If its like my 06 WK they are routed under the sway bar at the differential and then go directly behind the sway bar mounts on the axles.

That's what I remember as well. Some have put them over when lifted.

ok, thanks for the info. ive got a "moaning" noise in the rear area when I go over a speed bump. I think the cables may be rubbing on the sway bar

I have the superlift, and I had to put them over the sway bar. It looked fine normally, but when the rear suspension flexed down, it would try to hang from the e-brake cable.

In this photo, it's on a lift and you can see the cable is under tension. I re-routed over the sway bar, and everything looks great. I'm not sure what happens if you don't have the lift.

ok, I guess I need to find a wk that hasn't been lifted & look at it. if the brake cable goes over the bar it may be rubbing & causing the moaning noise. thanks

As previously noted, my 06 WK brake cables run under the sway bar, but FWIW it looks like one of them rubs on the differential when I looked under there. No unusual noises tho.
No lift and OEM factory shocks.

I think that may be a completely different issue.

ok, if the cables don't cure the noise, I guess I start tearing the rear interior out until the noise goes away. ive all ready replaced the spring cups / insulators and the trailing arm bushings.

So is the noise coming from the interior or under carriage? Maybe have someone else drive while you sit in the back and listen.

One fairly simple test is to remove the spare tire or disconnect one end of the sway bar to see if that stops the noise. You can also remove the rear shocks fairly easily for another test.
