I found that web site last week did it. It was easy to do. And cheap cost me 8 bucks at tsc. Yeah u have to be on level ground to get them in and out but level ground isn't too hard to find.

Yeah they work great. level ground works best but i was able to get it back in on uneven grounds to. they are quick disconnects and about 1-2 minutes getting it all reconnected.

"After using this setup for over a year, one of my homemade discos failed while driving on the highway. Although this did not cause me to loose control or significantly change the driving behavior of my Jeep, it is never a good idea to drive at highway speeds with your swaybars disconnected. If you still plan to do this mod, I would strongly advise you to to check the hardware component on a regular basis for wear and replace them as needed."

All you need to know.
I snagged some free skyjacker discos before some discount JKSs that I had to practically rebuild (~$60). Highly recommend them over this if you drive aggressive, are in an area where people drive aggressive or like me, have to swerve a lot (to miss deer). One of those many things I have to think about again when I go higher next year...

I check my suspension components about every 4 months. this set up works great for what i do.

Will these work?

Does anyone know if these will work on a non-lifted JK? For $60 I want to try... Im planning on lifting it eventually and don't want to buy disconnects again after... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...jk via @amazon

I've done the clevis pin swaybar disconnect and I didn't like it. It just seemed like it was slightly better than no connection at all. So I used a 1/2" bolt (iirc) and a wing nut and some washers. You also want to drill the bolt to get a cotter pin in so the wing nut won't back out. This setup felt just as it did from factory IMO..


I didn't have the holes drilled in the bolt yet for the cotter pins.. It will back out even with split washers. Except the top wing nut will stay put without a cotter pin.
