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?


DONT USE EM...i took off the track and sway bars with out any issues...


Thats not the best advice for a mostly street jeep. Where as with a good set of springs a track bar is not needed for a YJ, the sway bar should be used, yes i know it may feel fine but in the event of an emergancy move it will greatly reduce the jeeps handleing

IF ONE NEEDS TO DO AN "EMERGENCY" MOVE IN A JEEP. THEN ONE WAS GOIN tooo fast in the first place...take them off and get rid of the headache...drive wisely, its a jeep not a porche...

While I concur that a jeep is not a porsche, sometimes emergency manuvers are necessary. Like when a corner section of a couch comes flying at you on the Garden State parkway from the pickup in front of you that didn't tie the $%^&% thing down. I never noticed the difference with or without the sway bar, but I rarely drove it on the street, even at stock and near-stock heights.

That my freind is not true. Many emergancy manuvers I have done have been at lower speed 30-55mph and as the result of the bad driving of someone esle. Pulling out in front of my, swerveing into my lane, not signaling a turn or not having working brake lights...

I dont have a headache with mine. they were engineered there for a reason and purpose...

Some guy in a little white pickup had the corner section of a sectional couch in the back of the pickup. Don't know what finally made it fly, but out it came. Once I got past the initial adrenaline rush of avoiding the accident, I immediately found it hilarious.

again, all those driving emergencies can be expected with attetion to the road, instead of gabbin on a cell phone or chokin down a burger or puttin make-up on...when im in my jeep...i DRIVE...nuthin else, so i can expect the ignorance of others...hence no need for trac bar or sway.

OK, as mod of this forum, I ask nicely, KEEP THIS ON TOPIC. The debate is not for the necessity of or not, but how to remove. We could argue all day about opinions.

Thanks.
