sway links
so, it seems time for some new sway links on my 05 limited. i'm the second owner and the first owner didnt seem to take great care of the car. so my question is, what kind of sway links should i get? i know there are the stock ones, srt, and bwoody. im putting in a complete srt suspension(springs, sways, shocks) soon. any thoughts?

thanks a lot, for everything

Re: sway links
if a handling UPZGRADE is in the cards, as it seems it is, then get the bwoody.

Re: sway links
just get new bushings from the dealer and reinstall them. upgrade the sway bars to srt bars, which you can also get from the dealer.

Re: sway links
Well, you will get new bushings with the new swaybar, but the OEM swaybar endlinks can be bought anywhere.. The Bwoody's are much more HD and really stifen up the bar, but also at a the expense of ride comfort, and they are not useful for off road use.

Re: sway links
i meant sway link bushings....... an srt sway bar will stiffen the ride, stock links are fine. do the bar first and you will agree with me.

Re: sway links
IF putting on an SRT bar, might as well install new end links too, as they do wear out (clunking noises), as mine did at about 40k.

^^ Ah ha so that's what that noise is! My next mod is def rear SRT sway bar and bwoody links. I want the extra flex when romping! :D

Re: sway links
Just so you realize, the srt bar and Bwoodies are for on road and are not going to do anything positive for off road use. IF you go off road regularly, I would certainly not get the bwoodies, as the rear suspesnoin does not articulate (the bwoodies have no ball joint, like the stockers) and the ride is also much rougher over bumps..

For off-roading, you might want to look into quick-disconnects. I was thinking about the same thing - it will give us more play and flex. I think there were some guys that used ones for JK's, but I'd have to research it again:

Re: sway links
Really?!?! I know the rear sways are for better on road handling, but what about rear links? What can I use for more flex or, longer travel in the rear? (not really the right words, but you know what I mean)
