I need to replace the front sway bars on my 2005 TJ Rubicon. It doesnt look like there is any damage to the bar itself but the bushing are smashed and the top one on the drivers side is split.
So my question is: Is it worth upgrading to a quick disconnect bar or stay stock? And do I need to replace the entire bar assembly or just the bushings. My jeep is stock. I am running 265 75 16 tires....
If you are referring to the way bar links in the pic and do any offroading I would for sure recommend looking into some quick disconnects its makes your rider smoother/ and allows more flex on the trail.

Thank you that helps a ton! Its the sway bar link that the bushings are bad... yesterday after a day of fishing and some wheeling in rough rocky stuff I was coming home on the highway and hit a rough spot in the road. i was traveling about 60 or so and the front end of the jeep started to shimmy back and forth. this happened a few times on the ride home. I got under there this morning and noticed that the bushings are smashed and there is a lot of play in there. Do I need to look at other problems as well?
Their are alot of things that could cause front end wobble from tires being out of balance to tierod ends, balljoints, and other things. Mine had a wobble after a tire rotation and it worried me at first but after a simple tire rebalance all was well.
