I have fitted the detachable links as you can see in the pic below,

my question is, is that the right way? or should I turn it 90 degrees?

I have noticed that with the way it is now the links does not allow enough sideways movement.

I speak under correction but I do not see what difference it'd make turning them 90 degreeze. Also it is their purpose to restrict sideways motion, hence taking them off when 4x4'ing.

Use to sell it at The 4x4 Shop - Have a look here Stabilizer Bar Disconnect/set of 2, but it seems they all sold out.

If unsure which way to line up the square tubes, you can set them at a 45 degree angle and this will give equal motion in all directions, but typically, you want the open side of the tubes facing front and back relative to the vehicle.
Once set, align the end link tubes such that they have enough side-side and front-back movement to allow the sway bar and suspension to move without binding. Around the pin, you'll have the most motion (essentially unlimited) and side-side will be somewhat restricted. If unsure which way to line up the square tubes, you can set them at a 45 degree angle and this will give equal motion in all directions, but typically, you want the open side of the tubes facing front and back relative to the vehicle. Typically, the ends of the sway bar are relatively shorter than the width of the axle, so for a given up-down movement of the suspension, the up-down angle on the sway bar ends will be more than the tilt of the whole axle.. This also makes for easier removal and installation as you can reach in from the wheel well to slide the tube into or out of place. Then, snug down the lock nuts and you are ready to go.
