Sway bar

http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q...11/swaybar.jpg

When I got finished wheeling today the top was aiming down,I flexed the hell out of it I think would that cause this to do that. A friend of mine said it was just the swaybar no big deal just loosen and push it back into place so we did,everthing seems ok now. What do you think caused this and should I take it to the stealership ?

sounds fixed to me. I wouldn't worry about it. Your link looks a little bent there too.

oh yea, did/ do you disconnect your sway bar when wheeling?

It's a Rubicon, huh? That side drooped far enough that the link went over-center, and the mark/bend in the middle of the swaybar link is where it hit the tie rod.

You can disconnect the whole endlink when offroad (difficult with stock links like that, easy with aftermarket quick-disconnect links), otherwise longer links will help prevent that.

So it looks ok to drive it like that and it will be ok ? should I in the future look to upgrade to quick disconnects?

I wouldn't worry about that it should handle just fine on the road.

If it's a rubicon, pick up some longer links - they are not expensive. If it's not a rubicon look into getting some quick disconnects. The teraflex disco's are great btw.

Not if you can hold one wrench and turn another at the same time.
