Hey guys. Today I'm here with the Teraflex Quick Disconnects Swaybar End Links fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers with three to four inches of lift. So, as a lot of you guys know, disconnecting your sway bar end links will give you instant articulation off-road and flex off-road. So that's why a lot of people disconnect them at the trailhead. However, if you don't have quick disconnect hardware, it can be time-consuming and tool-consuming getting down on the ground and manually unbolting them. So this kit by Teraflex will make that process a whole lot easier by just pulling a pin and easily disconnecting them. This will also come with hardware to stow them up and out of the way. So this is a very efficient kit to getting on the trail faster. So at the moment, this kit will roughly be at $130, which is at a premium price point. However, Teraflex is very high quality in my opinion, and this is a very functional kit. Other more expensive options on the site will have a couple of different add-on features like being adjustable or double adjustable. And other lower price options that you may be seeing may not come with all the quick disconnect hardware or none at all. So I definitely think that you are getting your money's worth out of this kit. So install is gonna be a very easy one out of three wrenches, and it's nothing you can't accomplish in an hour with a couple of hand tools. So speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. The tools that we used for our install were an impact wrench, an 18 millimeter wrench, an 11/16 inch wrench, an extension, a 19 millimeter deep socket, an 18 millimeter deep socket, a 14 millimeter deep socket, and an 18 millimeter swivel. So our first step in removing our old sway bar links is to remove the bottom 18 millimeter bolt and nut. You're gonna need an 18 millimeter wrench, and I'm using an 18 millimeter swivel. Now we can do the same thing for the other side instead of moving to the top nut just so we can have the sway bar swing out of the way so we have a little bit more room to work with. Be careful because it will swing down. Now you can take a 19 millimeter deep socket and remove this nut that's holding inner sway bar. So I have a couple of sway bar end links in front of me. I wanted to show you some similarities and some differences between a couple of the styles. So, obviously, we have our short sway bar end link here, and this is gonna be from our stock setup. So this is what would come off of your Jeep with the stock suspension. Then we have the sway bar end links that I pulled off of my JKU with a 4 inch lift kit. So these are gonna be extended sway bar end links. However, they are gonna be set up very similarly to the stock sway bar end links with a standard ball joint up at the top and a stationary bushing down at the bottom with the medal sleeve. Then we have our new Teraflex Quick-Disconnect Swaybar end links. So these new ones will be a little bit shorter compared to my sway bar end links that are specifically made for four inches. So these are gonna accommodate between three and four. So compared to your stock sway bar end links and even some aftermarket sway bar end links, you are getting a couple of benefits out of these new Teraflex quick disconnect end links. So these will come with a ball and socket style joint down here at the bottom with a polyurethane bushing. So it's gonna be able to move round and give you a little bit more room to work with better angles when they're disconnected as well as when they're connected. And the polyurethane bushing will reduce noise over time so you're not getting any metal-to-metal contact and you even get a grease fitting down at the bottom here so you can [inaudible 00:03:54] them so they will have a very long lifespan. And not to mention, you are getting all of the quick disconnect hardware. So you're getting the pin to attach it to the bottom stock bracket on your Jeep while it's attached to your sway bar and then you get another pin to store it up and out of the way on our new bracket. So with the quick disconnect hardware, disconnecting your sway bar links will be a breeze. All it is is a pull of a pin and you store them away on your new bracket instead of having to use tools and manually disconnect them and having nowhere to store them. So it just makes it very easy overall. So not to mention, you are also getting the quick disconnect hardware. You get a couple of storage pins to attach them to your sway bar and when you disconnect them to store them up and out of the way. So instead of using tools at the trailhead which can be time-consuming, all you have to do is pull a pin and you're ready to go. So enough about the other sway bar end links, let's get these new ones installed. So our first step into installing our new sway bar end links is to install our bottom pin. This is gonna be what attaches it to this bottom bracket instead of these standard bolts. So we're gonna take our larger pin and put it through our bracket here. Take our washer and put it on the other side and our nylon locknut. I'm gonna thread that on. So I'm gonna be using a 19 millimeter deep socket and an 11/16 inch wrench to keep this still and tighten it down. You wanna make sure that's torqued down to 75 foot-pounds. Now you can do the same thing on the other side. Now, we can attach our sway bar end link to our sway bar with the provided nut on the end of our stud here. So you can tighten this down with a 19 millimeter socket and a ratchet. So now that we have our sway bar end link attached to our sway bar at the top, we can position our spherical bushing around our pin. So these are pretty flexible with the ball joint at the top. You can see that it's gonna move back and forth and have a lot of give. You can move over to our other side and slide that one on as well. So I would recommend before actually sliding this over the pin that you put a little bit of grease on there. This is actually too much, but you just wanna make sure that it's a little grease so it's easier to slide over the pin. So now we can attach our pin and our washer. You wanna make sure that you install your washer over here first because that's what's going to keep this pin in place. Once you have your washer on there, I'd recommend to hold it in place while you insert your pin. And now your sway bar links are attached. So you can repeat that process on the other side. After we're finished installing our sway bar end links, we still need to install our bracket so when we disconnect them, we can store them up and out of the way. So our bracket will attach to our body mount up here. So you wanna make sure that the taller side of the bracket is facing ours so we can attach our pin to essentially attach our sway bar end link. This hole is threaded so you're just gonna thread your smaller pin into the bracket. You're gonna have a nut to the other side. What you're gonna do is tighten that down with a 14 millimeter socket. So now we can attach our bracket. We need to remove the 18 millimeter nut that is on our body bolt up front. Now we're gonna attach this sandwiched again between the nut and our body bolt. You can tighten that down with an 18 millimeter socket and extension if you need a little bit of room. So just to give you a little demonstration on how this kit will operate, when you're at the trail and you wanna go off-roading, all you have to do is pull your pin. So once those are off, you can slide your end links off of the storage pins. That way you are fully freeing up your sway bar then you can push this up. So after you have your sway bar pushed all the way up, you can connect it to here to your storage pin. Grab the same washer and the same pin and just reconnect it at the top. So now that's in place. That's not going anywhere and you'll have full suspension travel since your sway bar is disconnected. So that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install.
