    Dat rite there is yer sway bar link, on upgraded and modifyed trucks they install quick disconnect styles to allow for more articulation (flex) offroad. It is recommended when you replace one side to replace the other as well.
    Strength is nothing more than how well you hide the pain

    Yer hot, wet, and extremely satisfying. You always put a smile on my face and yer the first thing i want in my mouth when i wake up....aaaaaahhhhhh Coffee, my only friend.

    Just go to your local auto parts store and tell them that you need 2 front sway bar links for your jeep.

    To help explain it further its called an anti-sway bar. Stock they are not disconnectable unless you pull out a tool and remove it. Its meant to keep the jeep from excessive swaying\tilting\body roll when taking a tight corner but it limits the wheels travel up and down as both sides of the axle are connected to the same bar. So aftermarket option is to buy a sway bar disconnect which easily lets you disconnect or connect it depending on where you are driving. I also have BDS disconnect sway bars bought from Rockspyder (above sponser).

    I went through two endlinks before giving up and buying some JKS Quick Disconnects. They are a bit expensive but they give you more flex when wheeling. Stops that neck pain at the end of the trail too.

    Hey looks like you and I did the same thing. You didn't happen to hit a large rock like me did you? I highly recommend the disconnects as everyone else is suggesting, unless this is simply a daily driver and you don't intend on wheeling it.

    Disconnects are cheaper than replacing both links anyway.... I had the Rubicon Express Gen 2's, and they were easy to install and worked great...

    Get them even if you don't plan to wheel it -- the difference in articulation and even COMFORT when driving off road (even in mild conditions!) is worth it, your ass will thank you.
