rubicon express tri-link help

i have 98 sport that i am putting a rubicon tri-link long arm 5.5 on and i was wondering if someone that has one can tell me how the spring pads sit are they level or back and do i need the swaybar on the back or is it ok to run with out it on something you drive on the road like 200 miles a week. also can someone tell me how you are suppose to run the muffler so that it dont get in the way of the top links?

I have the tri link, great investment. I run the sway bar on the rear. i ran mine for a month without any sway bar at all on the front. Drives fine and is a DD. Muffleer guy, friend of mine, just kept it close to body as possible, no rubbing yet. I will post u a pic when i get home so you have an idea.

You can run the sway bar ,you just don't need the track bar anymore because of the tri-link!As far a the exhaust your on your own! Most of us with a tri-link will suggest taking it to a good muffler shop and having them do the routing!The exhaust will need to be customized!Good luck!May I suggest all mandrel bent stainless and Magnaflow stainless exhaust?It will run a few hundred bucks,but well worth it!Good luck!
