Between me and my brother I am the hard physical worker. I can make a fire with a few sticks and a rope, I enjoy camping, and I just love the outdoors. My brother may not be able to do or enjoy some of the things that I mentioned before but he knows a TON about computers. When I have a problem with my electronics or an electrical problem in my jeep I ask him about it since he builds his own computers and does all of the wiring/programming on the SAE team and the race car they build at our college. But you may not know this if you just assume he is lazy since he is usually in his room when he is home and does not go outside much except for classes.
Emphasis is just shifting from physical attributes and the outdoors to technology.

You might have been born in a tool box, but you didn't learn reading comprehension or tact. Have fun "peacing out". No one disconnects the top. If you want to have them disconnect so bad, weld the bolt to the bracket and use a wing nut on the top as well. There is no reason to do that however but whatever floats your boat. You can go buy whatever you want, no one makes a product to disconnect both ends of the link because you don't need to.
Oh and you would probably get a better answer if you didn't post with such a bad attitude. But since you did, you get it right back
And for the record I didn't call you lazy.
|11-26-2013 09:13 PM|
the point was how do you make the top side quick disconnect as well.
I too was born in a tool box with a wrench in my hand.
I can make almost anything from scratch.
I do all the repairs in the house.
I sew, clean, cook, and love my family.
Now how the heck do you make those effin tops quick disconnect?
If I can't get an answer, besides, they swing out far enough, I'm gonna go buy the mods that make my toy mine. It's not due to laziness, it's because that is what I want. I already turn the wrench every weekend and put the bolts in the magnetic offering plate. I want a break from work when I go play.

|GingerTJ||I think the best way to do it is to replace the bolt with a hex head, and keep a socket set with you. It will only take a few seconds to disconnect|
|11-26-2013 07:59 PM|
Definitely easier w just the bolts man. I don't use anti seize. No problems.
|11-26-2013 05:53 PM|
The only thing that sucks about the oem setup is I get anti seize on my hands every time I connect/disco.

SOMETIMES my sarcasm doesn't find it's way to the forefront.
Think about it for a second............................................ ..................
How many folks you know can start a Fire WITHOUT the use of their Gasoline
and Matches, Make a shelter out of Branches / Leaves? Society has gotten
away from the DO-IT-YOURSELF attitude, and moved into that Techno era of
PUSH-ONE-BUTTON and out pops that Roast Beef Sandwich on Rye with the Dill on the Side.
ANOTHER THOUGHT.............. This one might take a little longer.
With the Holidays approaching and Families all gathering around that
Golden Brown Turkey or Honey Glassed Ham, ask the question HOW MANY
at that Table can Bake a simple Loaf of Bread, or a Basket of Home Made,
from scratch mind you, Buttermilk Biscuits.

|GoldenSahara00||I see you found the bolt don't button. Yes. Don't spend 150 dollars on discos because your lazy was what I was trying to say.|

Sorry guys, never saw any of these posts, I don't get on here much anymore honestly. I went back to a bolt setup a long time ago (2 years~) after maintaining them became a hassle in the long run. I keep 2 drivers w/ the sockets in them right by my drivers seat. It's more secure and honestly it takes about 10 seconds per side to unbolt them. I like having the tools handy too w/ of my small socket sets (I have way too many, always need them) so it's not a big deal for me. A few of the options posted above look really good too, but the way I see it is save money and just unbolt them. Don't be lazy
But if you feel like it make the disco's. Still may not save ya much time in the long run, but you won't have to keep the tools handy.

|The_Dealer||it will move far enough to let you zip tie the link to the coil buckets|
|11-25-2013 05:46 PM|
Ok. I get how the bottom part works.
now lets talk about the top of the disconnect.
My Tj has a stud that goes straight up through the sway bar.
there is nothing in the writeup about how to address that situation.
according to the picture it looks like he has the q/d top already in place.
do I need to buy different sway bar links anyways? in that case..... i'm gonna go out and spend a few more bucks and just save myself the headaches.

now lets say I already have the q/d then this would be a great replacement in case you lost any parts wheeling.

|GingerTJ||Just a heads up, I ran this set up for 7 months or so on a 5" lift tj, and the Clevis pin sheered right off one day, and my sway bar was disconnected down the highway! So be safe and check it every now and then|
|11-25-2013 09:27 AM|
|krisbman||I did this style only with different pins some time ago. I see that you have the link zip tied to the bar, however you will need to secure the other end up to the body some how or it will droop down and chowder up your tires|

|11-25-2013 01:00 AM|
My disconnects are only temporary until I get more time to make a better set over Christmas break or get the money for the real thing.
You can't really go wrong with only spending $6.24 on them
|11-25-2013 12:02 AM|
I did that and hated it. After a while the pin wear, and clunks and squeeks. You also have to keep a check on the washers and pin, as after awhile the pin will wear right through. Here's what I did that works better. Btw im not knocking it, it did the job for me, but I found aj alternative.
I took a flage head hex bolt the same size as the stock bolt, and bought a large wing nut to fit the bolt. I tightened the wing nut as tight as I could by hand, then a little extra with my Gerber tool(which I keep in the jeep). I made a mark in between the "wings" of the wing nut. I flattened the threads a little with a file where I made the mark. Drilled a hole into the bolt, the size of my lynch pin. I put antisieze on the bolt, and put a washer between the end link and wing nut. It stays tight and clunk free and is easy. Pull the lynch pin, loosen the wing nut and pull the bolt. The lynch pin keeps the wing nut from backing off. I can take some pics if anyone is interested. It didnt cost me anything as I already has bolts, and reused the washer and lynch pin from my disco's like the op. You can even use the stock bolt with a wing nut

|elite56||How did you like these when you had them? I didn't want to dish out the $150 for JKS quick discos so I made a set similar to these yesterday.|
