JK Rear Adjustable Bump Stops
Reply with quote  #3 
Couple great questions recently from a customer:

1. Instructions reference a drop bracket but I did not have one in my kit?  --- The Drop bracket is only if you chose the "More Than 5.5" Of Backspacing" Option. If you have less than 5.5" of backspacing, you do not use the drop bracket.

2. How do you orient the rear sway bar link, there are no pictures showing which end built in bolt installs?  --- The built in bolt on the 12.25" rear JK sway bar link bolts through the hole on the sway bar itself. The bushing at the other end is bolted to the bracket on the axle.

These are great questions and help us to continuously improve.

Thank you.

A few notes from my install... 2014 JKU Rubicon X - 2.5" Game Changer ARB

1. The bolt on the drivers side upper control arm is now inverted from the factory so you do not need to cut and replace

2. The factory bolts are now (2014?) correctly sized, don't waste your money on an aftermarket bolt kit

3. Keep the bump stops as far inboard as possible as they will mis-align as your suspenion articulates

4. Obviously subject to testing, but as a baseline for you to adjust off of (and ended up being correct for me), I used 3 spacers for the front and 3 spacers in the rear with the 2.5" kit, 36" OD tires and Bushwacker flat flares.
