this thin disco doesn´t look stable IMO. i would install some JKS discos instead.

i like my Gen 2 discos...they have done me fine. i think all thats wrong, is the bolt came out of the heim...they can't be worse than stock links.

i was thinking of JKS...but not enough cash. especially with Valentines day coming up LOL

That bolt doesnt appear to be a standard "hardware" type of bolt. looks to be tapered and shouldered and would prob. be a grade 5 or grade 8 .temp fix you could use a reg. bolt but long term i try to find proper replacement

have you ever tried to disco them and then reconnect them?

these disconnect and reconnect like the JKS ones. very easy...

btw, Jeeperx, you were right. it is a "shoulder" style bolt. ace hardware had that style bolt but they didn't have the size i needed. guess i'll look somewhere else or just take the other one out so i can compare inside the store. i honestly haven't noticed a handling difference...except for last night i took a turn in 2nd gear and was just goin a tad fast and the tire started spinning. didn't used to do it that easily.

Mr.Big you're going to have to go to RE for those, I believe there two spacers also? One on each side of the knuckle.

Nico, the JKS are very good, the RE's are just as strong.

you could try your local hardware store. they should have something that will work. as far as those discos from RE. they are bad ass, ive wheeled with mine many times and when its time to disconnect it takes me under a minute. they also came with fender mounts for when im not connected

The spacers are kind of conical shaped.

A friend of mine had the same problem with his RE gen II disconects shortly after he installed them. He called RE and they promptly sent him new bolts. We were in Moab Ut. at the time and he got them the next day. Excellent service!

btw those links seem way to long, wont they be better if the red piece is installed on top of the sway bar instead of on the bottom?
