Do quick discos rattle?

Just bought my Jeep yesterday and occasionally hear a slight rattle when driving. Wondered if the sway bar quick disconnect pin is causing this? I haven't yet had time to look over the vehicle closely.

Could be, I had some when I first got my Jeep that rattled, I got JKS quick disconnects & they are quiet, what sort are they that you have?

I don't know who makes them. They were on the Jeep when I bought it. It's barely noticeable. I'm just checking everything out and wasn't sure where it was coming from. My friend looked today and that was what here thought since it didn't have a bushing where the pin is.

I have a rattle/squeek sometimes, but it comes from my hood latch (in the center under hood.) I spray some white lithium grease and its good for a month or so.

Mine squeek now and then. I spray them with a little WD and they stop.
Just grab the sway bar and shake it and see.
My Jeep is just a rattling, squeeking, clunking pile....

My quick discos rattle. I have a set on that I believe came with a RE kit. Not sure if they are the same as yours. They are metal to metal so it makes a screeching noise every once in a while or over a bump it sometimes makes a clunk noise.

I have the Full Traction discos that came with my kit and they tend to rattle a bit as they don't have a bushing like the JKS I had before.

There's no rubber bushing in there? There's gotta be..it has a grease fitting.
