Teraflex disconnects design change?

Just got my quick disconnect kit from Teraflex for 0-3" lifts and when I opened it I was surprised to see they don't have any zerk fittings on them like what is shown in all the pics of the kit online. Anyone know when they did this change? Is there anything to be aware of with the new design?

I would call TF directly and ask them, they would have all the correct info on that. They may even have some with a zerk fitting if thats what you want.

Thanks I'll call them and see what's up. I don't really care one way or the other as long as they still work and/or work better than the previous design. I just wasn't expecting that.

Maybe a wrong package? Would think the picture would match the product.

Don't think so, they only have a few quick disco kits and they all show zerk fittings. I'm thinking a design change and photos/install docs haven't been updated, I'll call them in a few and find out though.

My lift kit disconnects didn't have them either. Video said to make sure they were accessible, didn't think too much about it

Looks like I have to double check when I get home. Teraflex said there should be a zerk for the "bottom" end (side that goes on the pin) and the fitting may just not be screwed in and be in the hardware kit. I didn’t think I even saw a hole but maybe I wasn’t looking closely last night. I'll definitely be double checking.

Ok I'm apparently blind or whatever. Got home and checked and sure enough there is a hole in the "disconnect" side of each link for a fitting which is included in the hardware kit to screw into. They did redesign them though with a new set of hardware on the end that connects to the swaybar and that side does NOT have a zerk fitting anymore.
