Garfield Avenue, Coldwater, MI 49036 2 Page JKS2942 JKS Adjustable End Links Installation Installation ‰ 1. REMOVE ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT (OE) REAR SWAYBAR LINKS  Remove the original mounting hardware that secures the rear swaybar links to the swaybar and chassis.  Discard original rear swaybar links, but retain mounting hardware. ‰ 2. DETERMINE PROPER LENGTH OF ADJUSTABLE SWAYBAR LINKS The Adjustable Rear Swaybar Links can be adjusted to any length between 7” and 10-1/2” (measured from centerto-center of bushings). However, the three Recommended Lengths indicated in the chart below will suit most applications.  Choose the Recommended Length from the following chart that corresponds with the amount of rear suspension lift on your vehicle.  Rotate the rear swaybar until the distance between the original mounting holes on the swaybar and chassis is equal to the Recommended Length* for your vehicle.  Rotate swaybar up and down to simulate full suspension travel. Check center of swaybar to ensure it does not contact axle housing.  Also check angle of swaybar swing-arms in relation to lower rear suspension arms. Optimum performance will be achieved when these components are close to parallel.  If you did not achieve the desired results with Recommended Length, fine tune the length until desired results are achieved. ‰ 3. MODIFY CONNECTING ROD For applications with less than 4” of Suspension Lift, it may be necessary to cut some thread material from each end of the Connecting Rod (A). HINT: No cutting is required for vehicles with 4-6” of Suspension Lift – proceed directly to Section 4.  Remove Bushing Eyelets (C) from both ends of the Connecting Rod (A).  Refer to the following list to determine proper Connecting Rod (A) length for your application.  Using illustration below as a reference, mark each end of the Connecting Rod (A) indicating the appropriate locations to cut. HINT: Remove same amount of thread material from each end. JKS Adjustable End Links Installation JKS2942 Page 3  Using an appropriate cutting tool (such as a die grinder with cutting wheel, or metal cutting saw), carefully and squarely cut each end of the Connecting Rod (A) where previously marked.  Now completely unthread both 1/2” Jam Nuts (B) from Connecting Rod (A) and re-install. HINT: This will help to repair any thread damage that may have occurred during the cutting process. ‰ 4. SET FINAL LENGTH OF ADJUSTABLE SWAYBAR LINKS  Apply a drop of medium strength thread locking compound to the tip of threads at each end of Connecting Rod (A).  Completely thread a Bushing Eyelet (C) on to each end of Connecting Rod. ‰ 5. INSTALL SWAYBAR LINKS  Apply a thin layer of wheel bearing grease to inner surface and sides of Poly Bushings (D). ©2013 JKS Manufacturing, Inc & Aftermarketing, LLC Revision Date 9/30/2013
