Gents,

I just purchased some new JKS Disconnects for the front sway bar on my 04 TJ, and I am having trouble getting the top bolt out of the swaybar. How do I tackle this? I tried putting the nut on and then backing off a few threads and smacked it good with a hammer and that doesnt seem to be working.

The bottom disconnects easy.

Ideas?

Well guys, I called JKS and they said to disconnect both sides, pull the swaybar down and knock it out with a hammer, it's a tapered bolt. After some very hard "smacks" they both came loose. It's all hooked up now, and I am ready to go disco off road.............Oh ya baby!!!

Sorry I didn't see this any sooner, I'm glad you got it out. We did an 04 TJ a couple of weeks ago and an 02 two years ago installing the same discos. For those who read this from now on out, the use of a BFH (big frickin hammer) and a tie rod seperator (one of those forked things) works great.

Yep, that's what I ended up doing. Pulled the swaybar down so I could get some good smacks on it, and used a bigger (BFH) hammer. I takes some good hard smacks to get it to break loose. Very Happy
