Any chance you could post some pics of your JL with these on it? I'm having a real hard time visualizing the passenger side. The driver's side is straight forward and looks like the JK but it is slightly offset. However the passenger side has the bottom piece of the link, (the part that gets disconnected) buried in a steel bracket that you have to pull the sway bar link OUT of instead of pulling it OFF of like the driver's side.

Also the Rancho and JKS links don't appear to have the offset that is needed for the JL, the JK links were straight.

I took those pictures this weekend when I was installing them on my Wife's JL. I can snap some photos when I get home. Trimming off the one "tab" on the passenger side was really easy to do with a reciprocating saw. I spent more time shaking the paint can to cover the exposed metal than trimming off that piece. I did keep the tab if I ever decide to weld it back on, but I highly doubt I ever will.

You can buy the same size clevis pins for a lot less, but those appear to have holes in the right place if you don't have a vise or drill press.
