Alright, so I bought these swaybar discos off of a guy, and I can't get the friggin links off. I've beaten, prodded, cussed, and beat some more. I went and bought a tie rod puller, couldn't get it to work either.

Anybody got any bright ideas?

If at first you don't succeed, a bigger hammer is what you need!

Are you're trying to get the bar off the links (unlikely, you probably got that off) or the links off the axle? I'm not quite sure how it's set up with the front leaf springs on a YJ...if it's similar to how the links connect on an XJ, what I did was lots of PB Blaster and a BFH...

On Yjs, the stud for the lower is on the spring pad (the underside of the springs SUA) and the upper on the sway bar. The links look like 0------0 (turn 90*s) essentially.

it was a considerable pain i the ass to remove mine in fact one of them is unbolted and still on the bar just wired up out of the way, and its been that way for 2 or 3 years, and still hasn't fallen off (believe me i try ) a pitman arm puller would probably do the trick or maybe a pickle fork, but if you have pretty stiff springs a 2 cent piece of wire would suffice
