Price: $69.99
Pros: Easy to assemble kit
Cons: not very adjustable below 3.5"
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have the XJ set, the listing isnt there in the database, but believe the TJ set is similar if not the same. Parts look to be well thought out, it uses mall tie rod ends to allow the shafts to articulate and rotate up and out of the way.

It also comes with little explanation of what a few of the washers are for, they dont seem to fit any of the bolts supplied. Im worried that the bushings will wear out from being put against the pin and only the pin.

Price: $69.95
Pros: Great price, Super easy install, stabilizes my tippy jeep
Cons: Where the linkage pivots looks weak, I'm not sure but I think if you forgot to disconnect while offroading they would probably break.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought the 2.5 inch ones to go with my RC 2.5 inch lift. These were very easy to install. I did run into a problem with the sizing. The instructions tell you to adjust them to a certain length then install but for some reason even though they were the same length I couldnt get them to fit evenly. I had to extend one side and screw down the other to make them fit even though this made them not the same length at all. Who knows, maybe my sway bar is bent. Anyway, after that they worked like a breeze and after not having a sway bar for about 6 months there was an immediate and noticeable difference in handling. Also they are super easy to disconnect, just pull the pin, put them up on the retaining bar and your offroading. One not of concern I had is that the joint that moves does seem a bit chincy. I think it is fine for normal road driving but if you forgot to disconnect these while wheeling I think it would be pretty easy to break them without really doing anything too extreme. Obviously they are meant to be disconnected so this shouldnt be a concern but just be aware.

Price: $66.00
Pros: -Strong -Creative -Functional -Easy to use
Cons: -The bolts that lock the disco to the axle have to be removed when the link is disconnected. Not a huge deal but annoying.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have the newest version of these disconnects with upgraded materials.
80% is now grade 8 hardware and everything is VERY sturdy.
The rough country disconnects are the cheapest on the market and the best bang for your buck. They beat out higher priced products in functionality, usability and quality.

If your a JF member (you most likely are if your reading this) pm RCJeep and he'll hook you up with a deal. I got mine for $66 shipped. They are marked $69.99 without shipping on their website.

Price: $69.00
Pros: These do allow for some adjustment and seem pretty stout.
Cons: Lynch pins supplied with kit are kinda cheesy, recomended location of holding brackets can cause rubbing under certain conditions.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I am using the version of these for a 2.5" lift. These seemd to be a reasonably priced alternative to all of the more expensive options out there. I got them for $69 shipped with the JF discount. I've been using these for a few months now and I'm generally happy with them.

On my second outing with these I was getting serious rubbing when flexed and turning. After investigation, my tires were hitting the swaybar. The stock location of the holding brackets (mounts in the bolt holes for the plastic swaybar cover) held the swaybar in a location that would cause rubbing in certain conditions. I lost one of the lynch pins and had to tie wrap the swaybar up to continue. On the way home, I stopped by Lowes, got a couple of lynch pins, four 1/4"X1" bolts, some fender washers, regular washers, and ny-lock nuts. I held the swaybar up to get the location, drilled a couple holes for each bracket, and mounted the brackets to the fender wells above the spring perches. Problem solved!

I would highly recommend these as long as you ignore the instructions and mount the holding brackets as I described above. See pictures below for my new location.
