I made mine last year and love them. I have had no problems. I will be replacing them soon when I go 4". I'm at 2" right now. Look up my post on DIY discos. I'm on my iPhone and don't know of I could link it. I will try

Mine started to show wear after a while. Since the hardware is cheap enough I just made sure to keep spares of everything in case they became too worn. I had mine on for about a year and a half before I installed an Anti-Rock, and in that time I think I only replaced the pins once. And I wouldn't say it was absolutely necessary, they just looked to be a bit more worn than I was comfortable with, so I threw a new set on.
Make sure you find some way to keep the sway bar up and out of the way when you're disconnected, otherwise it can be quite the annoyance. If you still have the stock links, you can prop them on your shock towers as pictured above but if you have extended links for a lift you won't be able to do that. I eventually got fed up with my sway bar falling down at the most inopportune times which is when I bought the AR.
I just fold them up like they suggested earlier, only I have some velcro strapping that I wrap around them and the frame, does the job for me and I didn't have to do any drilling, I'll probably make something more permanent like suggested
