My garage pet is almost a roller. The sway bar is installed and the links are next. Problem is there us no weight on the frame to properly measure what the length of the sway bar link needs to be with an OME 2.5" lift. I am guessing just extend the 6" on center link to 8.5" on center.
Have the tubing to do this..is the reasoning sound?

I think your reasoning is good. 8.5-9” should be fine.

For reference mine is a BDS 4” with 3/4” shackles. My sway bar links are right at 11”. I measured the stock ones at about 6”.

I think the reasoning is sound. Another thing you could do is to take a look at aftermarket disconnects for 2.5" lifts and see what their dimensions are. I have 2.5" lift and the aftermarket disconnects fit right in.

BTW - does anyone sell or make rear sway-bars for CJ's?
