Looks good. Do you have the front one disconnected as well? Its amazing how flexy xj's are without swaybars.

Nope the front sway bar is still connected. I need to get some disconnects for the front though.

At that lift height, you might be able to get away with taking the front one out all together. I don't run either one in my heep and while it does lean in the corners more than normal, its not bad at all.

the more lift the more you need the front sway bar!

i took my rear one out when i stuck in my dana44... never even noticed it was gone driving on the road... but then again i dont have any weight up top anymore... if you have a chopped top you could probly go high lift with no front sway bar too i would imagine...

I don't run sways on mine at 7" and it's no worse than when I had them both off at 4". Got to do with tire stance too.

I've got 12.50s on 3.75" BS so I'm low and wide lol. Pretty stable for me.


Decent flex but the rear discord will only get you so far. Need them both off so your whole suspension can work when off road. Makes a huge difference.

Good looking XJ. You'll get even more flex from the front when you disconnect the sway bar. It will surprise you.

Thats what I was saying. The OP isn't lifted very much so he could probably run without them but yeah, the higher you go, the higher your center of gravity, the more you need a sway bar. Kinda obvious really
