What do you think? I've got an 02 Wrangler and am wondering if Homemade swaybar discos are a good idea?

I've heard they wear easy and am wondering if this is a smart thing to do. Confused


TIA,
Stephen

I don't ever recommend them. Too loose and will wear.

Better alternative is to replace the torx bolt with a standard hex head.

I agree with Eric on this. Home made discos can be made realy cheap with hardware store or home depot parts and peices, but Ive never seen home made ones that werent terribly loose after a while.

I run them on my XJ. The cleavis pin wears and the whole assembly loosens up. So you replace the cleavis pin and the whole process starts over again.

I'm just gonna go with the new RE discos. As easy as JKS discos to use and they include a bracket to clip them up out of the way...for way cheaper than the JKS discos too.

JKS makes the best Quick Disconnects out there, and the Quicker Discos are the ones you want. They're easy to put on and a cinch to pull off. Just remember, Lock-Tite Red is your friend. I had the unfortunate opportunity to have my QD's pop off right before a trail run, and the 2-1/2 hour ride back home plus a few days waiting for the replacement parts was not fun.

EDIT: WHOOPS! Sorry Steve, didn't mean to step on ya there. RE's are cheaper than JKS's.

Thanks for all of the replies...I was aware that they are pretty weak to start with, but I was just curious if anyone else was running them, I'll probably end up saving up for those RE discos


Again, thanks for all of the information,
