front disconnect , where to put the disconnect studs
 
Hi all-
I have the rubicon front sway bar disconnects and don't know where to attach the stud/pin that you attach the end to after you have them disconnected. Can someone post a picture of where theirs are?
Thanks

I ran Teraflex disconnects for years before replacing with an Antirock. They came with the frame mounted storage pins.
I installed them by rotating the swaybar up. Moving the links forward until the end lines up to the center of the frame. Mark and drill one side, tap the threads in, and install. With one side hooked up in the storage position, mark the other side, and repeat.

I have seen them mounted the other way too with the link straight back instead of rotated forward. Mine never gave me problems the way I did it.

Unfortunately, I can only find one pic with them. Hard to see on the black mall crawler. But, you can see the big washer and clip on the frame just below the front of the fender. Hope that helps some.:)

When I ran Tera's QDFT quick discos, their mounting studs for when they were disco'd had to be located at the very top-most part on the inside-side of the frame. Mounted any lower and the tires would rub against them. In my case, I erroneously first mounted the studs at the mid-point of the frame where the tires would rub & push the connecting pins out & they'd get lost on the trail. Moving the studs up to as high as possible (as I discovered was per the instructions) on the frame fixed that problem.

So after reading this reply from Jerry, my curiosity got the best of me. I went and peaked under my Antirock arms to see where the hole for my old Tera disco storage pins were located on the frame. Sure enough, they are on the upper part of my frame, not centered. :redface:

I used one of the holes for the cover over the sway bar. Just had to drill out and tap. Worked out perfect.
