Is that too high of an angle??

I ordered my @RanchoShocks discos almost three weeks ago from 4 Wheel Parts. Still haven’t received them. They said they’re coming directly from Rancho..
It doesn't seem to drive any differently with the longer links. These are the links Metalcloak uses on the 2.5 and 3.5 lifts. I have at least 3 inches of lift.

Thanks for the feedback! If and when my ranchos show up and they’re super long like people are saying, want to make sure I can run them without issue for now

Sweet! The delay actually works out for me since I’ll end up installing it as soon as I get it and it’s been cold. So into next week, the weather will be warmer and I’ll get it together!

Thanks a bunch for the update too

Still not delivered... what’s the delay @RanchoShocks

I should add... I call 4 Wheel Parts (in Cleveland) and they say they’re waiting for you, Rancho. I ordered and paid for these a month ago.

Right on @RanchoShocks - canceling my order on Friday and getting discos from someone else.

I don’t really know if you’re the breakdown in this equation but I would have hoped to get even a little support or, you know, a decent response...

Sorry about this, we are still waiting on a part from a supplier. It didn't meet our high standards.
You can always PM us if we miss a post on a thread.

The Rancho Links are worth the wait, I could not be happier with mine as well as Rancho's Support.

Pictures showing them installed? Want to check fitment, and how much lift are you running?

I had the very same issue!... the links are way too long... and I have the Rough Country 2.5 inch lift kit.. the long links combined with the brackets causes the sway bar to be at a 20 degree angle...

also the links do not seem to have the appropriate curved shape to align with the sway bar...

Compare them against the Rough Country links:

Yikes.... @RanchoShocks is this an issue?? I ordered these from 4WP a week or so ago (still haven’t arrived for me to pick up) but if THATS how they’re to be installed and people are seeing too much height like that, I’ll return them and figure something else out.
This is why I will not order them I spoke with the manufacturer and they had no answer for the offsite I spoke to the supplier I was buying them from they looked at this forum and they agree it’s an issue and suggested I didn’t buy them for the JL it looks like they’re for the JK which doesn’t offset.
