Front Swaybar Disconnects JKS 2034

If anyone is interested Rusty's currently has the JKS 2034 on sale for $110. Others on the XK/WK forums have said they work for our front ends. I picked up a pair but have not had a chance to install/test them out yet. They came quickly and fully sealed in JKS packaging, no issues there. Rusty's is getting rid of stock because they want to start selling their own version.

Do your own due diligence, as I have not had a chance to test out yet and they are not listed for wk/xk compatibility.

I installed the JKS 2034 in the front of my XK this weekend.

They are a tight fit with the spindle, but do fit and I have had no rubbing, clunking, or rattling with then yet (about 50 miles).

You do have to turn the wheel Left to install and remove left side and same for right side.

The 2034 are made for the Wrangler and have a short pin on the top right. I was going to separately purchase a standard tapered pin, but glad I did not, as the XK requires the short pin on the upper right as well.

Again, these are a tight fit with the spindle at the top end (I have mine set about 1" - 1 3/8" longer than stock to compensate for the lift, but any more than that and you won't have room to get them on/off and clear when turning).

thance, how did you install the 2034's in the front? I purchased a set and it is not immediately obvious to me the best way to accomplish this. Did you drill out and re-tap the lower control arm to fit the post? Or perhaps re-threaded the post to fit the existing hole? Any advice would be welcome. Thanks!

2 months on and I haven't yet found a source for posts that fit. JKS used to use posts that fit (m12-1.75) but no longer use those - their current posts are all 1/2-20. This means the current JKS 2034 swaybar disconnects no longer work on the commander.

For anyone still considering front quick disconnects, I was able to have a local shop drill out and install thread inserts for the front a-arm holes to match the threading of the JKS 2034 posts. This is a one-way modification - no going back without replacing the lower a-arms.
