booger i removed the same one bolt each side with the stock setup and propped the end link up on top of the spring perch. less than 2 mins each side.

the only thing the "quick" disconnect removes is the need for a wrench. you're still stuck finding the same level spot and/or having a friend bounce the Jeep to get everything reconnected.

I'm glad to hear that you are happy with your setup and saved some $$$ on discos.

But you recommended earlier to save the money and just unbolt the sway bar or buy a swayloc.

While a Currie anti-rock sway bar or other similar solution may work for him, he doesn't sound like he has your setup. Sounds like he has a stock swaybar and disconnect system. Would you recommend he stay with THAT setup?

So your opinion that "quick discos" are a PITA is noted. However they are FAR less of a PITA than the stock set up.

The $100.00 in "savings" is worth it to me.

I was thinking about doing that. The only problem is that I cann't figure out what to do with the top of the sway bar link. I can put a pin in bottom, but I still need to get the top to release or rotate out the way.

joemd60 My StepDad still will not me or anyone drive his 67. I like the new body style... someday.

jdhallissey ^ yup yup- I was actually one of the first people to drive the pic inyour avay but with a whipple at the dearborn test track!!
05-07-2009 09:15 PM
joemd60 I see, thanks jd.
05-07-2009 09:08 PM
jdhallissey ^ they are connected now then when you get to the trail you disconnect them so your swaybar doesn't limit axle movement. Again he can take his stock ones and spend 15 bucks and have quick disco's.

joemd60 I am sorry to sound dumb but I am still learning here. The quick disconnects, is that to replace your stock stabilizer bar? And what is the reason for the disconnect, better flexing on the trails? Thanks

booger to save $100, i've stuck with turning a wrench. it's on par with the PITA of "quick" disconnects.

if you want a real solution, get a SwayLoc.

Timberman X3 on JKS Quicker Disconnects.. They are like $140 and all the other products pale in comparison.. Seriously, my buddy just installed a RE4.5" Superflex which came with their disconnects and they are sooo much thinner than mine.. Most shops will agree that JKS are the best on the market.. Also, they have a nice integrated mount which installs on the frame.. Very nice!!

stevens243 x2 on JKS! Wonderful product!!
05-06-2009 11:29 PM
Sb5551 I would go with a 2-4" incase you plan to go bigger, but definatly look up the JKS disconnects.

I've installed bot the RE Quick Disc. II and the JKS. They both are great units and won't rattle or be as difficult to disconnect and reconnect.

Not exactly, but they look pretty close. I am really trying to figure out if the size matters. I see them listed for 0-2" lift, 2-4" lift, or these 2.5"-4" lift. I have a 2" lift. Does it really matter which size I go with for the discos?

quick disco

I am wanting to put sway bar quick disconnects on my '02 Jeep. I have a 2" BB. Will this one work?

Skyjacker Quick Disconnect Front Sway Bar Links
For 97-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ & Unlimited w/ 2.5"-4" Lift

I am concerned because it's sized for 2.5" lift. Should I just keep looking for one for a 0"-2" lift?
