Quick Disconnects

I have a 2014 JK that I'm trying to install Rubicon Express Extreme sway bar quick disconnects. The part number is
RE 1132 and everything I have checked including the Rubicon Express Company says these are the correct disconnects for my vehicle. My problem is the stock links are between 6 and 7 inches long. The shortest I can made the new links is about 10 inches. The new links then cause the sway bar to be at about a 35 to 40 degree angle. The instructions say to keep the sway bar level or no more than 10 degrees.
Has anyone had the same problem or do you have an idea what I could be doing wrong?

Those are made for a lifted JK. Looks like you'll need at least 2.5" lift for them to work. If you're at stock height there are pin kits for the stock links.

I'd either return them, or you could possibly cut some of the threaded rod and a bit of the end collar to get the ends down lower. If that's as far as the ends can screw down, I'd definitely trim some of the threaded rod until the end can at least touch the jam nut.

I'd also recommend measuring your front end (from the bottom lip of the frame spring tower to the top edge of the axle spring pad) to see exactly how much lift you have, and then adjust the links until they are that amount longer than stock (stock is 9-3/8" as shown). My RK 3.5" lift netted 4.25" of lift without any added weight; your 2.5" lift may be more or less...
