So I got a 2.5'' lift kit and want to get sway bar quick disconnects for JLU Sport S. All im seeing are JKS kits for $175 with new sway bars. Do they have just the quick disconnects pins for the JLU that dont require replacing the sway bar????? Links would be great, thanks guys!

Everything to replace the sway bar end links.

The stock sway bar itself stays, nothing wrong with that part

Mine was $180cad

Yea $180 seems like a lot just to make it quick disconnect. I hate seeing JK quick disconnects for like $40 lol.

JKS end links are beefy. Had them on my TJ, think it's overkill though.

I have Rubicon Express HD Quick Disconnects. Love them and they have worked very well for me.
any cutting or drilling required for the Rubicon quick disconnects?

Yes. You have to cut the tab off the mount on the passenger side to have room for the mounting post. I've attached the installation manual for your reference.

I ordered the Rancho kit... still waiting for it to be delivered to my local 4WP for pick up - hopefully soon! Anyway, I opted for this kit specifically because there’s no cutting involved.

JKS seems to be the standard kit but the cutting thing doesn’t sit well with me so.. Rancho it is!

Update on the Rancho kit? This is something I'm looking to get as well.

Still waiting for it to be delivered. Expected delivery date from USPS is Friday 3/29 I’ll update then! If it delivers as expected, I’ll definitely get it installed same day and will be sure to document install and post back here.

Before you even attempt to install the Rancho kit... look at this thread..

https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/rancho-vs-rock-krawler-vs-jks-sway-bar-links.17963/

I have the Rancho Kit.. link is way too long for a 2.5 inch lift kit ( I have a Rough Country 2.5 inch lift kit on a Unlimited Sport) ... Rancho promised to make a shorter version.. I have yet to call and ask if there is a new version of the link.. however I doubt it will ever be produced.. see... The Rancho kit has these bracket where the quick disconnect link attaches... that bracket raises the connecting point by a couple inches.. I even cut the link by two inches.. even then the angle on the Sway Bar is about 13 degrees.. their documentation states that the angle should be less than - / + 5 degrees.. I will publish a photo when I get a chance.. I liked the idea of the Rancho kit because I didn't have to cut anything.. but the design as I bought it is way too long for a 2.5 lift kit.. I imagine it works fine for a much higher lift kit.. perhaps 4.5+ inches

BTW.. .Which Rock Krawler quick link fits the JL ? So far I have only seen the one for JK..
