Teraflex quick disconnect help!

So a couple weekends ago my friend I installed the teraflex quick disconnects on my '12 sport. We torqued the nuts to the specs, greased the zeros and re-torqued after a couple days of driving. Fast forward to today, I hear something rattling around and get out to see and I'm now missing a stover nut from the front passenger, top part of the sway bar ?! Can't find exact specs for it from the install manual to replace but I'm hitting Home Depot in a few to look for a replacement... Anyone else have this happen before??? Maybe add a ton of lock tite when I find a replacement?...

Thanks for the help,

I have the Teraflex disconnects on my ZJ and have had them come loose on two different occasions. I ended up using lock tite and tightening as tight as I could go without damaging something. I haven't had any issues since but it turned me off on the Teraflex brand of disconnects. I am going with something else for my JK.

I've had it happen with the Teraflex and JKS so it probably has more to do with the fasteners. I periodically check them to be safe.

Well at least I'm not the first person this ha happened to. Ill be sure to check them every couple of fill ups and the zerks... Do you by chance remember the size of the lock nut? I'm going to hit Home Depot and try and find a couple spares just to keep just in case.
