Discos - Teraflex or JKS?

It's time to get some quick discos for my otherwise stock 2 door.

I like how the Teraflex ones come with a mounting point for the links, but I've also heard a few bad things about the quality of their construction, but I can get them about $70 cheaper then the JKS ones, which I haven't heard anything bad about.

Poly Performance kits state "Suits Jeep with 3 - 4.5" lift". I'm waiting on them to clarify whether this is in addition to a stocker - anyone used these on an unlifted Jeep?

Can anyone chime in with their opinion/experience and help me make up my mind?

I have heard a lot better reviews of the JKS. Sometimes better cost more.

I have the Poly installed on a 2.5in lift and with them at their shortest setting the swaybar is about 5 degrees up from horizontal, so you would not want to put them on anything lower without modification.

By modification I installed a rear set as well, but at their shortest setting were way too long. So I bought a good quality tap (1/2in 20 TPI from memory) and extended the thread down the tube another 2 inches then chopped 2 inches off the tube. Worked like a charm

I haven't seen the JKS first hand, but would still recommend it over the other. Whilst the other (and the Poly) have the stow pin, the JKS remove completely so dont need it.
