I made my own quick disco's, I'd post some pics but my daughter has misplaced our camera. Anyway, yes they do work but are a pain if our not on leval ground and they are sloppy and noisey, espeicaly on washboard road. I tried to keep things as tight as possible, but if I went any tighter I wouldn't be able to put the pin back in the hole when re-connecting.
I have been looking around for some manufacured disco's, and I like the JKS setup, but I found Nth degree has a disco set up that looks good too, but it's on the pricey side.

Has anyone seen or used these disco's?

I'd stick with JKS myself.

I tried messing with making my own out of all kinds of things, but it was a lot easier in the end to just get some real ones. I got JKS, and they were easy to install and are easy to use. Also, theyre adjustable in case you ever lift it.

It may be a bit crazy but I completely removed the rear sway bar altogether. I didn't notice any change in handling. I believe this is because with my lift and the tire size and the fact that the sway bar is so small it really wasn't doing anything. Give it a try it is far less work than disconnecting the rear. I run JKS up front and they work great.

Ive ran the rear disconnected and I"ll never tempt death again on a trail. Off camber and no rear is asking for trouble.

If you must run with the rear disconnected please never recommend it to others. Its just bad advice.

The rear sway bar is small for a reason. Its designed to allow some body roll. On the trail your Jeep will twist just fine with it installed. Removing it only allows for additional flex that honestly sometimes is just not needed and can allow your Jeep to roll right over.
