    Default Home Brew quick disconnects

    I decided to make my own quick disconnects. Here's how I did it..

    got some ring type cotterpins.

    took the nut off the sway bar mount and drilled a hole through the bolt

    put some grease on the bolt, slipped the way bar link back on and put the cotter pin on.. and waa-laa.. quick disconnects..


    I'll use a small bungee strap to move the sway bar out of the way.

    Nice job! Looks just like the JKS ones on my XJ.


    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.

    Cool, didnt think of doing it that way. I took the torx bolt out completely and replaced it with a cotter pin. Of course mines a TJ though, Yours doesnt look like one ha-ha
