I have looked at those, but they are a little more expensive and im really just trying to figure out if the ones i posted will fit, they say 2.5 to 4 in, and the BB is a 2 in lift. but at the same time, skyjack doesnt make discos for a 2 in lift, so im guessing they will work. looking for confirmation

While they would fit, that type of quick disco is known to rattle which at least for me would drive me crazy. I'd spend a little more to get the JKS quick discos recommended above, they don't rattle.

Lifetime warranties are often added just to make a product sound better but they're seldom useful. Just like Autozone's cheap/shoddily made water pumps come with a lifetime warranty but it's just a gimmick to induce you to buy an inferior product. Not saying the Skyjacker isn't good quality, just that its lifetime warranty doesn't add value to it, especially if you're just going to have to listen to it rattle the rest of the time you own it.

You will Like the JKS QD I haven't used mine yet but they were easy to install and they look good sitting at the Mall......I'm jonsing for a run but everyone is gone for Easter break....Man that stinks.

Tip on taking the old links out I pushed my Swaybar all the way foward against my bumper put a nut on the bolt and smaked the beejebers out of them and they popped right off. (may not be the propper way but it works)

I have the JKS's on my wifes XJ and they are BEEFY. I like them because they are adjustable and well beefy.

I have the Rubicon Express Gen2's on my TJ, but I'd rather have the beefiness of the JKS's.

here is another vote for the JKS, I went with the home made 1st. then some eBay specials that worked passably well but as soon as I found a deal on the JKS I bought and there really is a difference. Next for me is an antirock.

I have home made discos with bigger pins than the ones most people here use. So far no problems at all. No rattles at all.

home mades are ok without lift.
with only 2" BB the short stock sway bar end links are too short and the sway bar doesnīt work as good as it could with them because it isnīt in a perfect angle.

My rc kit came with extended sway bar links. I'm using those and they fit perfect with my discos.

not to mention the ball is more likely to pop out of the socket due to the added stress and ruin the link.

Maybe because none of our TJs come with swaybars so your Jeep being "swaybarless" wouldn't be unusual?

Please tell me you completely missed the two posts above that described how they rattle. Not to mention that not many like having a separately removeable center link that requires you pull four cotter keys instead of just two like on JKS's to disconnect the antiswaybar.

they are a PAIN to get reconnected after they have been disconnected. the holes are very very hard to line up to get the pin back in.
