Re: Bwoody Performance Sway Bar Links Group Buy!

Ok I am not much of a mechanic but I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night ... So I think I should be able to install these and am pretty sure I am going to order a set.

So I have a few questions:
1. I do allot of driving off road as well as on dirt roads. Will I notice an improvement or not in this driving condition? I know there is an improvement on road.
2. By installing these will I void any part of my warranty?
3. Is there a “phone a friend” option if I do get stuck when installing them? I am a communications engineer but can turn a wrench on simpler projects.

Thanks for any and all answers….

Re: Bwoody Performance Sway Bar Links Group Buy!

1. this is a HANDLING MOD for on-road. will not help or hurt compared to oem offroad/
2. according to the law ANY aftermarket part that the dealer CLAIMS caused another failure, the DEALER has to prove that.
3. do you have a torque wrench? ramps? then get a friend who does to help or get a pro. once these are installed, you ned to have the suspension loaded then torque them down.
4. add some grease on the faces of the bushings during install/

Re: Bwoody Performance Sway Bar Links Group Buy!

A loaded suspension means torque it when the Jeep is back on the ground, right?

Re: Bwoody Performance Sway Bar Links Group Buy!

yes, that will put the load on it. i use ramps to mess with mine so its loaded. but sometimes its easier to take the wheel off to get it all tight. in that case I put it up on stand and use my floor jack under the lower control arm and compress the suspension some that way. on the wheels is the best/

Re: Bwoody Performance Sway Bar Links Group Buy!

For anyone who has installed these on a wk2 on the rear sway bar links is the links flush with the sway bar and bolts as well? Both sides of mine the bolts do not wanna sit flush and have small gap on them. I'll get pic posted when I can.
