I have the SRT Bwoody springs on my WK! Sick drop and sporty ride. I did have to trim about an inch off the rear bump stops.

WK Sway Link Feedback!

I got my sway links today from the GB. Better Hurry!!!

here's what comes in the box. install pics here tomorrow



here are some pics with the links side by side and mounted.

Front side by side:



Front Installed



Rear side by side:



Rear mounted:



The front went straight one. No issues.

The rear, which uses a new 1/2 (.50) inch bolt to mount to the sway, was a little but wider that the stock bolt (.47) On my Addco Bar it required me to open the whole up with a 1/2 inch drill. Now I tested it on my stock rear sway and it fit, was tight but fit. So maybe a round file would open it just enough if you have stock sways. I'll let Mike @ BWoody know what i found.

I asked Mike about Grease and he said just the bushing faces so I used some Poly bushing grease. Its clear or whitish grease thats sticky like fly paper. but it should keep any squeek monster away.

You need 18MM for both top and bottom front mounting. in the rear you need a 18mm wrench and a 8 mm wrench to get the old ones off the bar. then for mikes new bolt, its 3/4. the rear i did right on the ground no jacked up. on the front i had to jack the lower control arm up just a bit to get the hardware in. I did all my torqueing while all 4 wheels on the ground. Mike gives you all the torque specs on his sheet of instructuions. be sure to do it.

___________________________________

Now for the road test: Holy **** Its like NIGHT AND DAY. While just driving around the steering just feels that much more firm. Like its on RAILS!

Then when i made some crazy lane changes like to avoid something in the road, thats where these LINKS SHINE! Any kind of evasive type manuever, it just happens, there is little to none body roll. I can also feel its mauch tauter performing a 90 corner with no brakes. it does so as on tracks.........

my other suspension mods:
- front and rear Addco with greasable bushings
- rear Bilsteins (front in about 2 weeks when im on vaca)

So for me, these Bwoody links really are the 'missing link' to my suspension upgrades.
A well made product filling a void and completely out-performing the stock parts.

If handling upgrades are in your plans, I would recommend these links

Re: BWoody Performance Official Feedback Thread

the short ram bwoody intake flat out does not fit the 07 5.7 jeep. there is nowhere to bolt the mounting bracket, it just sits on top of the alternator. on another note, mike at bwoody is very professional, and a pleasure to deal with. i bought my intake from a dumbshit ebay vendor that had no return policy stated, and as you know bwoody will take no returns on powdercoated parts and mike still refunded my money. and also, UPS sucks a fat one. they damaged the package when i shipped it back to bwoody and they took no responsability for an insured package they damaged, but thats a whole nother story in itself. long story short, check with them about the short ram fitment because apparently there are a couple different locations for alternators on wk hemi's. and dont ship anything ups.
