Disconnected Sway Bar on my new 98 TJ

Noticed today that my sway bar on my 98 is disconnected and can't figure out how it should go back.. when I push down hard to move it into position it doesn't want to move.. maybe some oil will loosen it.. but I don't see how it bolts on or anything.. looks like a ball and socket type of system.. what holds it down?

It is hard to tell from such a small picture but that looks like a stock sway bar end. In that case it isn't disconnected as it is broken. You would need to buy a new sway bar end link.

Larger picture would help. Looks broken to me, as the other end (bottom of the vertical rod) is where it's normally disconnected from. I've never disconnected this end. Here's a pic of mine:

It is broken and you need a new one. Is the jeep lifted?

Easy to replace, but don't get stock ones. You need a pair that will match your lift size.

Can I just replace the disconnect links or since they are stock will I need to/would it be better to replace the entire thing?

You only need to replace the links, that is what's broken. The sway bar is fine.
