Rubicon 2.5" lift sway bar disconnects

I've had my 2003 WG Grand Cherokee V8 for a few years now but my 2014 JKU rubicon arrives next week.

This may sound like a silly question, but do I need to extend the electric sway bar disconnects for a 2.5" lift?

Cheers
Tim

Rubicon disconnects differently than manual disconnects. It doesn't disconnect at the end links. It is a 2 piece bar coupled together and when you disconnect it un hinges. The end links always stay put. You may want to get some bigger end links though since a lot of 2.5" lifts give you more height than advertised but you may not NEED them. Also wouldn't hurt to get manual disconnects since the Rubi e-disco is always breaking.

My RK 2.5" Max Travel lift came with longer sway bar disconnects, and I use them instead of the e-disco. Never had a problem with my e-disco breaking. Rather, the sway bar links would bend like a boomerang or break when the suspension was seriously flexed and they somehow came back bound up. RK lifts are seriously flexy, btw. So, I just manually disconnect them instead of pushing the e-disco button.

So, yes, I'd recommend getting extended sway bar links. For the cost, it's worth it.

Yeah they end links get screwed up that way when they aren't long enough. The need to be long enough to compensate for the addition droop in the suspension.

Get some longer end links.
