Disco's

I have heard of people making there own disconnects pretty cheap. How is this done and how reliable is it? Does anyone have any pics?

Here's what I did.
You don't need to weld the washer on, but it will keep the pin from wearing out. Also use washers to make a tight fit so you don't get rattles.



Personally, I don't like the homemade discos and ended up just unbolting my sway bar each week we went crawling. With the lift and stock end links it was a pain to put them back on so....
Now I have some JKS quicker discos.

lol, but you bring up a good point. How do they rate their metal in Germany? Just curious.
