Re: Any homemade swaybar disconnects for CJ?
I like the RS9000's, great shock. I don't have the remote, so I just adjust them by hand, 1 for the trails, 3 for the road, and 5 for heavy loads around the house, set and forget. They're expensive, but with the "buy 3, get 1 free" deal that comes up a few times a year, it makes them more reasonable. I'm thinking of a set for the TJ, along with the in-cab remote, the shocks on it are toast now. I just have to get the ones off the TJ first, anyone notice the top bolts are metric while the bottoms are standard? A little PB and the impact driver should work, hopefully.
Someone has a remote operated swaybak link setup out that uses the single pin design in the center of the swaybar. I looked at it, but decided 1)if I was that lazy I don't need to own a jeep, and 2) while it looks good in theory, it would limit the articulation more than the link disconnects.
The swaybar links we have on the TJ are nice, made by Summit Off Road, and cost $70. They're the 3 piece design, and very easy to get back together. They use a tapered pin that automatically wants to mate the two holes. The only problem is the pins are a little long so at full lock they rub on the tires abit. Not a problem for the tire, but I can see the rub marks on the sidewall.
