    swaybar end links squeaking

    as the title states i was going to swap my 2.5" quick discos into my unlifted jk to use on an up coming run. i however noticed that with no lift it seems like it'd rub the tubes coming through the frame. so i didnt. i reinstalled the stock links and now it squeaks like a banshee! how do i remedy this? it was on level ground when i tightened them up. maybe i over tightened them? i didnt have a torque wrench handy when i tightened em so i just cranked em down to what they felt like when i broke em loose. any suggestions?
    drives fine. just squeaks :S

    Eh just take em off for good... Makes city driving more exciting!

    But if that's not your particular kettle of fish... Perhaps try spraying a little wd40 on the ends? I don't think that could hurt. Or maybe disconnect them again, and make sure the surfaces are clean. I had a squeaking problem after putting in a new link. I actually needed to tighten it more.

    Your axle is not centered if it rubs those tubes. Not a big deal just cut the end of the tube.

    Ha ha it doesnt rub now the sway bar just barely misses both sides of the tube. I guess it could need to be tightened more maybe cant get a torque wrench on it to see the torque on it

    Update no more squeak cranked em down some more cycled the suspension and is now gone. New question though can you/is it safe to press out the sleeve in the stock link and run the quick disco pins? Is it even possible to press out the factory sleeves lol

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
