Sway bar disconnects

I finally got around to making my sway bar disconnects. I used 3/4" round stock and some tubing I had that was
3/4" ID. I cut four pieces of the round stock to 2" long. I then cut 2 pieces of tubing to 3 3/4"long. Drilled 1/2" holes in one side of all four pieces to 1" deep. (the sway bar is 1/2" thick) I welded one piece of round stock inside the tubing flush with one end. Then I fit them together and drilled a 1/4" hole through them both at 1 3/16" from the bottom of the tubing. This length so that holes wouldn't cut into the holes drilled in the ends of the round stock. (holes for the pins) I got the 1/4" pins at tractor supply. Then I cut the sway bar at 1 3/8" (bottom of the sway bar) from the bushing opening. Removed the round stock from the coupler, fit it on the bar and welded. Then I fit the coupling back together and measured the length from the bushing to the coupling end and subtracted an inch, (for the drilled hole depth) I measured the sway bar from bushing to bushing and it was 8" So now I had to cut out the section of sway bar to make it the same length when finished. Fit the sway bar in the coupling and welded it together. Whala......... sway bar quick disconnects.

Would love to have a set of those, but I'm a cheapskate. Why buy it when you can build it.......
