I bought 1/2" clevis pins and grinded them down to a "snug fit" size to fit. I welded the washers to the end of the clevis pins. When I went offroad, i did leave the disconnected sways up on the spring area. It was tough to get it up there...I had to use a wrench to pry it up. For now I'm OK using the clevis pins.
When I get my 4" lift, then I will get some quick disconnects to make it fmore professional and reliable.
On that note, does nayone have a lift kit recommendation? I want my articulation to be outstanding. I don't want to spend thousands for a lift but I don't want a cheap lift kit either. Any suggestions?
