Best front sway bar disconnects

I have heard that everyone loves the JKS front disconnects, but am interested in any downsides in them or other brands that people love.

Cant vouch for the jks as I havent really used them yet, but they are much heavier (and because of that I presume stronger) than the stock ones I was replacing with them.

I used to run Tera's Quick Disconnects and they worked great, very quiet and included a pin to latch on when disconnected. JKS disconnect's are adjustable which would give it a preference for varied lift heights, the Tera's were a fixed length, hence limited to a set lift.

I no longer run disconnects but have upgraded to a dual rate swaybar that has a firm setting for driving on the streets and a soft setting for use off road. Running a purpose swaybar while off-road is so much better than completely disconnected. The Jeep feels much more in control and still flexes nice.

Have you considered an off road swaybar like Currie's Antirock? Having run both a disconnect and purpose swaybar, I highly recommend the swaybar over disconnects.

Theres really no point to getting "top of the line quick discos" in the end it just makes it easier for you to disconnect. just get cheap and dirty ones

I was very satisfied with the jks on my cj 7 - but not on the zj 5.9, cause they didn´t last very long. The upper and lower rubber were both to replace after 1-2 years.

on the tj i have the disconnects which are included in the rancho rock crawler 2.5" lift.
there are 2 pins on each side wich are connected and also used for hanging up the parted rod:

While on the subject of quick discos, does anyone have an opinion of the Rough Country quick discos? The price difference is huge between them ($49.95) and almost all of the others ($100+). I am thinking of getting these, so if anyone has any input, that would be great.

Thanks, Dan
