Sway bar disco's
 
I was wondering if anyone had any advice about making quick disconnects?? I would love to have a set, but would not use them enough to justify spending 140 bucks on a set!! I have a couple of ideas that I think would work if I could get my hands on a set of stock sway bar links!! If anyone has any suggestions, or has a set of stock sway bar links that they would part with cheap, let me know!! Thanks!!!

Ok, I did keep them, pretty much brand new, but I wanked up the bolt a little on one getting it out. If you want them, PM me your addy and I'll stick them in the mail for you.

Post Installation Notes
After using this setup for over a year, one of my homemade discos failed while driving on the highway. Although this did not cause me to loose control or significantly change the driving behavior of my Jeep, it is never a good idea to drive at highway speeds with your swaybars disconnected. If you still plan to do this mod, I would strongly advise you to to check the hardware component on a regular basis for wear and replace them as needed.

thats off the site ^^

Wow, thanks everybody!! I was thinking that if I did make them and something broke, it shouldn't be a major catastrophe, just should be a little wavy ride until I could replace it. Oh and tiny, you have a PM!!

I should have jumped on that one that Mr.C had for sale on here!! It was a good buy and would have been nice to have!!

I used to use these homemade ones. welded a washer on to prevent failure. Now use JKS.

I like the washer idea, I think I may get a grade 8 washer and weld on to mine to prevent them from wearing out if I go with this kind of disconnect. I was trying to figure out a way to disconnect and reconnect them in the center of the link. I will have to see what I can come up with though!

Did you ever have any trouble out of this setup you had on yours??

Bluesman 07-02-2007 04:27 PM

I honestly did not run it enough to tell. I got the JKS and only used the home made ones a couple of times, and put very little miles on them.

Chad P 07-02-2007 11:28 PM

Can you disconnect the rear swat bar for more flex

Triple88a 07-03-2007 12:12 AM

Chad i think the rear is soft enough. On my rig the rear always gives in if i don't disconnect the front.

Chad P 07-03-2007 12:23 AM

I know I was just wondering if they make disconnects for the rear?

jherrin215 07-03-2007 02:11 AM

I don't think they do, I have never seen them. I made my homemade disco's tonight. I used that write up then welded the 7/16 washer to the clevis pin, then welded that washer to the big washer that is on there stock and ground it down and painted it black. Looks like it is gonna hold up good. Also tiny I got those in the mail!! Thanks a lot. I have some ideas to try with those so I will see what I can figure out!!
