    If you peel back the bushing side a bit there is a hex nut on that side you can get a wrench on

    Your partly correct, you do need a hex key

    So I peeled back the rubber cover and did not find ant opening, then I looked in the end of the bolt on the side where the nut is, that has a hex opening.
    Thanks again for the reply.

    Wtf? Don’t think that’s how you do it. If it works, great.

    Put a wrench on the left side hex nut on the left side of the sway bar in this pic, then use a socket or another wrench to loosen the nut on the right side of the sway bar.

    This was the place to put a wrench on that I was trying to say on the bushing side... But it's not unheard of to put something like an Allen wrench in the stud of a ball joint to tighten the nut just like you did with the sway bar link but I think you made it harder than you needed haha

    the OP's swaybar links are not stock links they are Teraflex. They do not have a place for a standard wrench like OEM.

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.
