So for the few days I've been running Steinjägers quick discos for a few days and I really like them. Is you can see their a heck of a lot beefier than rough countries 4 inch sway bars. Maybe it's in my head but the ride feels a lot smoother. As far as the install it was extremely easy. I like the trailer hitch style pins, I was pleased to see that I was not going to have to buy the spacers so that they would have a full range of motion. My only complains is that my driver side has a little bit of space so it allows it to move up and down when the jeep is rocking(not able to hear or feel it from inside" but all in all I'm extremely happy with this and I think their well worth the 150 that they charge and am very eager to see how they hold up. I will be proud to wear the steinjäger sticker on my jeep (the stickers are a bit on the small side...just saying lol)

Interesting that they went away from the bushings to a 'joint'(?) style. They do look pretty beefy but I'd rather them have stayed with the link pin instead of the trailer hitch style pins

It would be nice to see how these hold up over time. Once less item to grease is nice if you're not fan of the JKS ones that can leak everywhere

That attachment at the axle is not very well thought out. It will only wear more and get sloppier.

yeah I like the idea of the "hiem joint" cause now I don't have to worry about the rubber bushing dry rotting and crumbling. And thats a good point, I wonder how these stay lubricated.

I wonder if you could use the bullet style mount at the lower connection. I would hate to have to remove the trailer hitch connections every time and possibly loose one.

This thread on? I think I like that idea more than pulling out the whole pin

Glad to help. Make sure they have the correct diameter and length before you buy. There doesn't seem to be any rubber isolation. Do these rattle at all?

Guys, thanks for the input! It is constructive feedback like this that drives us to continually improve our product lines.

As for the issue of how these stay lubricated, the heims used in our end links are from our Chrome-Moly series, which are nylon raced, which has its own self lubricating properties.

So in theory, I should never have to lubricate them correct?

This is correct, anything you do to "lubricate" will only attract dirt and other particulates that will shorten the life of the race.
