Home Made Quick Disconects

i started with (2) grade 8 3/8" x 2" bolts and (2) grade 8 3/8" with (4) 3/8" washers…

also this mod and be made with the stock swaybars, and swaybar bolts (you dont need the nut (my friend that came up with this setup doesnt run his set up with nuts), but i like the added strength)

i marked the bolts after installing aftermaket swaybar links (i used the rear links off my jeep, because i had some BDS quick discos up front (and like em) and decided to do this)

did this mod so i can better suport my swarbars…

can be done with stock swaybar links…

then i notched the bolts with my cutt off wheel so make it easier to drill though them…

be sure to leave the nut on the bolt while notching the bolts, it’ll help debur and fix the threads…

next i got the holes drilled in the bolts, now you are starting to get the idea…

the pin it to just keep the nut from backing all the way off, because i only hand tighten lol

i welded some tumb tabs on my grade 8 bolts and nuts…

not pretty but functional…

welded some pins to the frame to hold the swaybar links when not in used (the only reason why i did this setup lol )

i discoved that the place that i choose to weld my link holding pins rubs on the the tire under flex…

but no bad enough to damage the tire…

only my little hitch pins get bent…

but the links dont readly fall off so i dont need the hitch pins to hold the links there

i also switched over to this style retaining pin (just personal prefrence)…

i feel like it wont fall off as easly
