That's interesting. I've heard of others who have had sounds coming from those end links but when I looked at mine I wasn't able to recreate any knocking from down there.
Do you have a lift on yours? I need to find out if the daystar end links are longer that come with the lift so I can get the correct ones to swap in of that's the problem.

So, just picked my Jeep up from the dealer after they fixed the clunking sound whenever I would hit the slightest bump in the road up to about 40mph. The bump is gone and here is what the service memo states:
"Customer states there is a clunk in the front end. Sounds like front motor mount.
Verified concern. Took out chassis ears and placed on motor mount - did not hear noise. Tested on upper strut mount and still had no noise. Checked at lower control arm, heard noise a little and vehicle shook. Tested with stethoscope and found noise was coming from sway bar as well as cradle bolts. Re-tested and vehicle still making noise. Checked with chassis ears on sway bar link and found noise was very loud. Replaced sway bar links and front cradle, noise is gone."
They replaced part number 68246495-AA Bar Front. When I looked this up, it was the entire sway bar assembly. I did not see just the bushings listed as a part when I searched it on the parts directory, so that must just be the way it comes - seems kind of silly to me, but what do I know.
They also replaced part number 68246496-AB Link Stabilizer x 2. This was the part that was replaced with the longer ones from the Daystar lift. Not quite sure how they got them on there, but they did. Not sure what it will do other than maybe stiffen up the ride, but we will see. Unfortunately I did not mark the box to get my old parts back, so now I do not have the Daystar sway bar links.
Was curious as to what this may do to the ride height, so I decided to measure when it was parked inside my garage. 33" ground to top of wheel well in the rear and 32.5" in the front. I will have to see if I marked down any numbers from after I installed the lift.
All of this was covered under warranty, they could have easily said "Hey, aftermarket parts, tough sh!t" but they didn't.
801Renny - Any chance you could measure the length of the Daystar sway bar link and post it or shoot me a PM?
