ORO Swayloc Install - Check my Links and Arms
 
3 Attachment(s)
Just wanted to have people who know what's up with the SWAYLOC install take a quick peek to see if it looks like my Arms are at an OK angle and links more or less appropriately sized and set.

Thanks in advance...

pretty sure the arms are supposed to be parallel to the ground. Im not sure what effect it will have being a little higher but it looks like you dont have any adjust ment left to bring them down. did you buy the right kit for your lift height? maybe call ORO and ask if its an issue

I have no idea what ORO suggest, but your suppost to have it at a 10 degree incline on the sway bar to make it perform similar to stock. The less degree incline you have the worse it handles.

They provide adjustable links now...there is a 4.5", 3.5" and 2.5" inch (I think) set of links... I used the 4.5" and 3.5", but could swap the 2.5" in... the instructions do mention 10-15 degrees of incline, but I don't have an angle finder, so I guessed, and tried to make the links on either side the same.

Not quite perfectly Verticle, either, which probably means my Axle isn't quite centered (which I suspect for other reasons).

I looked at my instruction picture and they were parallel as far as I could tell. I will read it and see what they suggest, it has been a while since I put mine on

the instructions dont mention angle, but the pictures show them parallel to the ground. the only mention of position is to make sure when the tire is stuffed and you turn the wheel the tire cant grab an arm and bend it, not sure if the higher position is more likely to grab or the lower position so I guess you need to watch it until you know for sure you are clear when stuffed

I was going off the info from this thread...was hoping that more people that have installed (or designed :D) the Swayloc would chime in..

"I called Off Road Only (ORO, manufacture of Swayloc) and asked them, they said the operating angle should be between 10-15 degrees above horizontal, a little higher but pretty close to what the FSM says for the factory bar."

They look like mine, about even with the frame.
That'll work good.:tea:
