JKS FLEX CONNECT - NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT
Over the years the engineers at JKS Manufacturing have continually developed cutting edge new products allowing Jeep owners to get the most out of their vehicles. Innovations beginning with the original sway bar quick disconnect back in 1989 leading up to ACOS adjustable coil spacers and J-Axis control arms have kept JKS on the forefront of aftermarket Jeep engineering. We are excited to announce the latest product to hit the market from JKS Manufacturing is the Flex Connect sway bar link system. The Flex Connect is a huge leap forward in suspension technology allowing the Jeeps factory sway bar to be transformed into a high performance sway bar for optimal vehicle performance on street and trail. The design uses a specially engineered adjustable sway bar link that houses a pair of small coil springs that allow it extend and compress under load to better control body roll as well as absorb imperfections in any terrain. Additionally the Flex Connect increases the vehicle articulation over using a standard sway bar link and is easily customizable to meet your driving need using varying rate springs.
The Flex Connect was designed in conjunction with Pac Racing Springs following extensive performance and durability testing to bring this patent pending off-road racing technology into the Jeep world with a bolt-on sway bar system specifically tuned for the popular Jeep Wrangler JK vehicles with other applications soon to follow. Construction of the Flex Connect is second to none with the link ends machined from 6061 aluminum utilizing JKS spherical bushings for bind-free performance throughout articulation. The ends include grease fitting for quiet operation and easy servicing. The machined body of the Flex Connect houses the springs and piston all secured with a removable cap to keep out contaminants. The standard kit included one Flex Connect link, one standard link and hardware to complete the install.
The Flex Connect is customizable to meet your driving needs. Along with the standard spring set that is included with the Flex Connect, JKS offers 3 spring sets that can be mixed and matched to tune the vehicles roll stiffness, all of which can be installed in a matter of minutes using the supplied spanner wrenches whether you’re in the driveway or at the trailhead. The red springs are a high rate/low travel spring for ideal for on-road driving. The yellow “trail” springs are a mid rate/mid travel design offering optimal on/off-road performance. The blue “crawl” springs use a low rate with maximum travel to enhance suspension articulation while maintaining off-camber stability.
