    Might oughta report that vehicle to the Sheriff. Could well be stolen. Joyriders. A friend in Colorado had his Jeep stolen, and when they were through playing with it, they ran it into the Gunnison River. Total loss.

    I would be curious how these work with the rubi, I usually manually disconnect as I hate the sway bar reconnecting, if I don’t disconnect manually, I disconnect and kill it with the tazer.

    Copy that... I have all eight rk xfactor arms and track bars I know exactly what you’re saying. I put on a 90 degree grease fitting as per @ChattVol suggestion, on lcas for now until I cut out the bracket. Right now I think my fox shocks I’m running don’t let it hit there. They’re for 2” lift even though Mopar springs gave me 3.5”....:facepalm:

    I'm actually looking to get away from the RK LCA's...dont like the annoyance of greasing the awkward located fittings or having less room for tire clearance. My wheels are +10 offset and 37s will prob rub the LCA's.

    I had to swap a good portion of the fittings for 90 or 45, when I took mine apart either I forgot to grease the upper rear or they don’t move as much, they were pretty stuck used fluid film to loosen em up.

    Jeremy at RK seemed real positive on these links with the rubi, despite prior recommendations to manually disconnect, sounds interesting, I used to manually disconnecting, and the curry anti rock looks like a compromise, othersswear by it.

    I would love to hear from others on them

    Moving forward, I'm going to avoid buying parts with greasable joints where possible. The RK fittings are tough to access and I've had fittings get stuck in 2 grease guns and saw 2 different mechanics break 1 with their grease guns. It seems having to fool with greasing is becoming antiquated and that's why many companies are moving away from greaseable joints. I love the Metalcloak arms...they absorb vibrations and dont require greasing. At this point, I dont care if they flex a few degrees less. I've waited almost 4 months to grease joints and am not looking forward to doing it soon. I bought a flexible hose to grease and hope it helps with access on the fittings and doesn't get stuck and they break.:computerrage:

    Top off, doors off. She’s only 30 days off the dealer lot so still on highway treads. She’ll be on 35’s one day, but want to get some warranty miles on her first.
