- 2 -
3 Plastic Bushings- Installed in ends of front crossmember to support
the sway bar
- Hardware- All necessary hardware to
install the kit is included
Well thought-out and easy-to-follow
It's plain to see that the kit is well-made.
Upon assembly, all the parts fit together snugly and easily. Everything
lined up perfectly.
Remove the front bumper to access these
It will take quite a few hits to get
the inserts to sit flush.
The side bars are held on with a clamping bolt and and end
the jam nuts on the end links.
Installation took about
an hour, working by myself. Youll only need basic hand tools, block(s)
of wood and a heavy mallet or a long, adjustable clamp.
- Remove front
bumper and winch (if equipped).
- Remove stock
sway bar and end links/disconnects from frame and axle.
- Using a file,
de-burr the inside holes of the front crossmember. This is the roundish
tube at the very front of your frame.
- Using the mallet
and wood blocks or the long clamp and wood blocks, install the plastic
inserts into the holes in the ends of the front crossmember. They
will only fit in one way, and it is pretty obvious how they need to
go. Be sure to use the wood blocks to spread the force of the hammer/clamp
so that you do not deform the plastic inserts.
- Lightly grease
the ends of the sway bar and the insides of the plastic inserts.
- Push the sway
bar through one end of the crossmember and out the other end. It may
take a few mallet blows or the use of the clamp to force it through.
Center the sway bar in the crossmember.
- Loosely install
the 3/8-24x 2 ½ bolts and 3/8 NyLoc nuts through the small hole
on the end of the 18 end arms.
- Place the end
arms on the ends of the sway bar. The end arms should slide on easily
and be flush with the end of the sway bar sticking through the center
of them. Be sure the end arms are parallel on each side of the Jeep.
- Install the
5/16 flat washers, 5/16 lock washer, and 5/16-24x ¾ bolts into
the holes in the ends of the sway bar. Snug them down securely.
- Tighten the
clamping bolts and nuts, securing the end arms to the sway bar.
- Rotate the
assembly so that the end arms are parallel to the frame.
- Measure the
distance between center adjustment hole in the end arms and the axle
end sway bar mounts. This is the length to make the provided end links.
You may need to cut some of the threaded rod off to shorten the links.
the correct length is set on the end links, install them onto the
sway bar and axle brackets with the provided hardware.
- Be sure to
tighten the jam nuts on the end links so the threaded rod does not
rotate between the heim joints.
- Reinstall bumper
and winch (if equipped).
- Double check
all hardware for tightness.
The installation is pretty much a no-brainer.
It takes a bit of muscle to hammer the Nylon inserts on, but overall,
you should run into no real problems.
Before driving, check your turning
circle for rubbing. After I installed the Anti-Rock, my tires rubbed
on the end links in sharp turns, requiring me to add washers to the
steering stops on the knuckles.
