Default Extended Rear Sway Bar Links

Looking for a pair of extended rear sway bar links for a TJ. Doesn't need to be anything extravagant, just need a set of extended links.

Building a TJ for my 15 year old Son and we're missing links.

Thanks.

Do you have a welder? Are the stock links metal?

I just cut my stock links in the middle, added two pieces of small angle iron to form a square around the stock rods, separated the links about 3" more in length and welded them back together. Simple, cheap, strong and functional.

You could use tubing also and just weld at the ends, but I opted for the two separate angle iron pieces to allow for a couple short welds down the length of the rod for more bite. The steel Prob cost me around $10 or less at home depot.

hope this helps

This has the newer plastic links so cutting and welding isn't an option.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

New zone ones are pretty cheap.
