Building my own discos

Just a thought while my jeep is out of commission for the next 3 weeks anyway. I have a full machine shop here at school. Could I take my standard swaybar links, cut the center main link section out leaving about an inch by each connection. Then turn the remaining inch down a little, drill a hole through it and fit a pipe aroudn the turned down 1" sections?

In case that didn't make too much sense, here is a crappy MS Paint drawing (sorry, I dont have autoCAD, too far away to go to engineernig building )

Worked for me, I'm a machinist and just can't see the asking price for a lot of 30 minute to one hour "g" jobs. I've been running mine for a year. Leave yourself at least .010" clearance or they can get real hard to get on and off.

Cool. I'll go ahead and try that then. Thanks for the hint mdo817, i probably would have given it a .003-.005 tolerance.
