Live and learn. Imagine trying to do all this before the internet existed.

im fairly certain his links are made for lifted trucks. his fixed my terrible sway bar angles and i have the same amount of lift as you do. send him a DM, he will help you. it just seems as if you have either installed them incorrectly, or something is binding that causes your rear end links to look like that. mine dont look all cocked like that.

start watching mtbtim's videos and do your own wrenching. you can do a lot with a simple set of tools and o rileys rental tools. if someone installed those endlinks for you, they did a shitty job.

Okay... I got the links. It still seems like an odd angle. I only completed one side as I wanted some opinions/help.

I also noticed that the sway bar is chaffing on the shock body. I'm not sure that these links will do anything to correct that. I left the links at the lowest adjustment as the sway bar seems really close to the LCA.

Thoughts please... Thanks in advance.

when i did my rear sways i made the sway bar parallel to the rear lower link (i was told by someone not on the forum that is the correct way to install). if you are lifted like me your link is way too short and you need to run it out longer. the nice part is all you have to do is undo the lower jamb nuts on both sides of the truck and run the links out.

@MStudt makes these links. you should probably DM him this thread and he will take care of you.

The bigger issue is your links are seriously tilted in/out, which will not change with the link length. I believe mine are nearly vertical in/out.

Is that an OEM sway bar in there? Are both end links tilted inward (implying that the sway bar is too short for the body mounts), or is one tilted in and one tilted out (implying that the sway bar is shifted to one side)?

First question is did you install the longer links in the rear? It looks like you have the longer links in the rear, but it's hard to tell from the picture. If this is the case they should be in the front, and the short links in the year. Sounds crazy, but that's how it is.

The next question is about the sway itself in relation to the links. Something is off with the sway bar, and the angle it's putting the links at. Either the sway bar is bent or shifted.

Mike

Maybe your Total Chaos rear trailing arms aren't adjusted properly and you have the rear axle pulled forward???

Or maybe the end link mounts were cut off and reattached to the frame? Seems odd that they're the only painted section on the frame rail, like someone painted over them after re-welding.

This fellow seems to have the same setup.
Doesn't look to still be active on the board, but maybe something in his build thread.
