Quick Disconnects

So there are a lot of companies that have this. My question though is, what's the best brand to get and is going cheaper better than the more expensive ones?

Thanx

X2 on JKS. There are a lot of quick disconnects out there but no one with a JKS ever said they should have gone with something else. A little more $$$ but...

I guess I'll be the only one to say spend as little money on the stock sway bar/links until you can upgrade to something that's actually helping you off the road.

The existing bushings in my '02 are blown out and not sure what kind they are or if I can get the replacement bushings. After seeing what's out there and what folks spoke highly of I just ordered JKS from autoplicity for $120 + $15 for shipping.

Im starting to save up for an anti-rock sway bar, no disconnecting needed. Works pretty well on road and off from what Ive heard. They arent cheap ($300ish) but it seems worth it.

Seems like it's between JKS and anti rock. Been looking at the JKS and once I get a job, it'll probably be the first thing in addition to the CB .

I have used Teraflex TJ Wrangler Swaybar Disconnects 2-6 since 1999, and I've had not a single problem. They might not be the cheapest, but they are built to last !

Today's vote seems to be for the JKS version. I like mine too.
