Sway bar links length?

94 zj on ~4" how long of links do I need front and rear? Going for junkyard mods here I'm thinking ford explorer front links for the rear, and I was wanting to run a WJ sway bar in the front

Front swaybar needs to be at about a 5...15 angle up when looking from the side.
Rear swaybar needs to be at an angle that works correctly with minimal swaybar endlink bushing bind at ride height.



With a lifted Jeep, I highly suggest buying adjustable quick disconnects. If you use WJ front swaybar, you need to check the DIY mods required for it. It is not a direct bolt-on, but it is a fairly simple mod.

Swapping to a WJ bar isn't really worth it.


Between having to make some mods and changes it also changes the mount points for sway bar end links;.

And then finding sway bar end links that will properly work. Hole mounts are 90 degrees compared to zj.

Kinda broke atm but I need it streetable in the next 2 days otherwise I would just buy a set of adjustable links, the rear I think explorer front links are the right length
