It performs superb sir! I will NEVER go back to stock steering! I bent waayyy too many stock tie rods, draglinks, and stock ends. Those WJ end shanks are a tad shy of one tons so they're beef. I can get better pics and more details by request.

A small write up on by home discos:
Took my bottom sway bar bolt to the local hardware store (ie: home depot, lowes, ace, whatever you got). I purchased two 7/16 or 1/2 clevis pins, matching pins, and 2 corresponding washers per disco. I then installed them in the bottom sway bar bolt hole with the pin going inboard. When I disconnect, I just. Use a handy dandy bungee chord to hold the sway bar up and out of the way. There you have it, home made disconnects for $10~.

So you don't have any road noise or anything like that coming from them? I've read before that those clevis pins sh*t out and make a lot of noise.

They have a little play in them, and occasionally rattle around when I go up and down my driveway as the suspension loads and unloads. Aftermarket discos will do the same though. My brother just pulls his bottom bolts out every time. Much quieter operation, just takes 2 minutes longer. No big deal IMO.

I mean I carry the tool in my jeep to take mine out at anytime but I'd really like some discos.

Discos are nice, but can be noisy and troublesome. If you do the home made version, you can always switch back to the stock bolt.

I also pulled my VIC out and built a little switch panel to replace it. Those switches are $8 damn dollars at the parts house so I only grabbed one for now. The label says 'OBA'.

I grabbed a few more from the parts house, I get a hefty discount. Just no installing them until I need to.
