I went to the hardware yesterday and bought most of the stuff for discos, but they didnt have the rubber washers or wingnuts so i gotta go to a different one probably later today.

What do you need wingnuts for?

Just get a (2) 2 1/2 x 7/16" clevis pin, (4) 3/8" washes, and (2) 3/4" hitch pins

I thought i read on a homemade discos build thing that you needed wingnuts for the top bolt or something like that? I've got the clevis pins, washers, and are the hitch pins the ones that go through the holes on the clevis pin because i got those too.

You know its not really. I honestly didnt even notice the difference. I drove off the trail and completely forgot to re-connect them. Halfway down the interstate at 85 MPH I saw them sliding around in my back seat. Haha scared the crap out of me for a minute then I started testing it. I swerved, jerked, and did everything I could bt nothing felt different. i fly around corners and everything feels fine.

Yeah. Half the things people say you HAVE to do on these forums you dont. lol SYE for example. I got 5.5" of lift and no vibes whats so ever. i flexed that bad boy all the way out and never had a problem. But you will here people say anything over 3.5" you have to get one immediately. Take advice with a grain of salt when it comes from the net. Even mine
