upper sway bar mount.

see how you like driving with it fully disconnected; many have done just that.

Thats a bad idea on a TJ. You get wayy too much body roll with coils. It was fine with it disco'd on my old YJ, but on the TJ it rolls wayy to much making it real unsafe.

No, the entire End Link will need to be replaced, it's worn out. You should do both sides. Moog makes some really nice ones. If your Jeep is not lifted, then stock length is fine. It's a tapered ball stud at that end so a pickle fork, or heavy persuasion will be needed to pop it out.

Crap. Sorry, I'm used to living in YJ world and did not look well enough at the picture.

This is false. My roommate with his JK removed his front swaybar and it handles fine. With 5" of lift and 35's. He'll be alright without it. It's all how the driver feels about it. I say throw it away. Weight reduction. MPG increase. Sounds like a win win to me.

Unless your a saftey first kinda guy

Safety? Who needs safety? As long as you don't get hurt when you cause a accident, it should all be okay!

Would you like me to start listing names of vehicles with coil spring suspension and no swaybars from the factory, I can do that if you want !

I've seen far worse things done on vehicles then removing sway bars. If your worried about swaybars being removed or disconnected on the road, How do you feel about Suspension Lifts, and Body lifts ? They raise the center of gravity, Change steering geometry. Bigger tires have taller sidewalls that lead to more sidewall flex , Not to mention added weight that will wear steering componets and wheel bearings.

If you think you might wheel it occasionally now would be the time for disconnects. As long as you are working on it.

Yes please and built in the last 30 years,not comercial vehicles either.


It's more then a safety feature it's also a designed intergrated part of the suspension which will effect much more then vehicle handling(bodyroll).

Don't remove the front sway bar. It's a stupid idea & yes it is unsafe. It will cause more body roll & increase oversteer.

Having to make any evasive maneuver at speed will be more dangerous.

It is not just you...it is more dangerous for others on the road too.

After having driven my friends TJ with the antirock off road...I much prefer a sway bar like that for wheeling.

Disco'd on road is just stupid (yes, I have done it & I know from experience it is stupid & dangerous)

Op: if you don't wheel much...just get some links from NAPA... they are like $15/$30
