Pretty easy so this may be redundant but figured you need to drill and removing old links can be stubborn.

Tools-
Ratchet & wrenches - 13, 14, 16, 17, 19mm
1/2“ Drill bit
5mm Allen key

Started with the rear, remove old links with 2x 17mm. Good chance loosening the bolt spins the threads, grab another 17mm wrench and use the slots between washer and bushing.

Admire new links compared to old (slightly shorter & seem stiffer)

Jack up vehicle, remove tires - this was needed for my drill to fit, some may not need to do so.

Use 1/2“ bit to widen lower attachment point on control arm-

the front is pretty straight forward. Remove factory links with 17mm. If the threads spin use 5mm in thread ends to start removing nut. Once you get enough room or if you want to avoid strip the Allen key it may be easier using a 14mm as pictured below

I’ve found when installed they seem stiffer and induce less body roll on turn in, this translates to breaking traction faster when rallying so pretty fun. Once removed its Excellent on the trail. Each side it working independently and do a better job soaking up bumps and whoops. Much less teeter tottering crossing obstacles and climbing/crawling. The front being removed is noticeable above 30 or so but left the rear off and still pretty stable. If you don’t goof off on dirt roads much and only trail ride id only go for the quick disconnect in the front and run no rear at all.

100% agree. I don't run any sway bars but I can see where some would like to have them for stability between trails. I'm used to leaning on curves so it doesn't bother me but there are a lot of new people to this activity (this is a good thing) that don't feel comfortable with body roll. I think this is the best way to get them comfortable and have a cushion trail experience.
