I agree with you. I think these are now up to par and have all the glitches/worries sorted out.

Anyone see anything else i should address?

What lift do you currently have? Just let me know when you want a set and i'll get them over to you pronto. Haha.

I'll knock $10 off for you and anyone else who had a direct impact on sorting through all the troubles and improvements on these.

Im sitting at 3" right now. Planning on shackles in the rear poly spacer up front here soon. If I get these from you with my current lift can I just get you to cut a new piece when I go up to 6"? Have you figured out a way to hold the discos and sway bar out of the way when they are disconected?

Sweet. Yeah, that definitely looks better. I think they should work out well. Time will tell how those D30 SB mounts hold up, but they are certainly a known weak point, no matter who's end links are on them.

Thanks for the discount offer, but actually, they wouldn't work with my modified mounts. Plus, I am looking at either swapping in a Rubicon auto-disconnect SB, or building one of my own. But, happy to help, hopefully it was helpful.

I have larger problems to deal with on my rig right now anyway, finally found the reason my handling has gotten so scary lately. Both of my body-side shackle mount holes are elongated to about 2" long, and the pass side is also cracked. Explains why about half the time, going around a corner, it feels like the suspension just collapses. Because it pretty much is. Time to tear it all out, fab some repair mounts, and do some more welding...

Here's an update on them.

After not disconnecting them for about two months with mild wheeling they're holding up perfectly. Nothing is bent out of shape, they still disconnect perfectly, no bent lower mounting brackets, etc etc.

100% in-tact and functional.

Ask leadfoot about his relocation brackets you gotta cut the stock mounts off anyhow and are way stronger
