Here is what warrior's disco looked like.


It only did one thing well, disconnect quickly.
Re-connected was a huge PITA. Three pins go in fine, but getting the fourth pin to line up exactly right was such a pain. Basically you lay under the truck and try to bounce it all over while trying to push the pin through, it sucks!
The links were noisy, even with the TINY amount of play between the holes and the pins. On the highway it was fine, but on rough surfaces it was annoying and make the ride worse (with them connected).

Like I said, it was 10x easier to keep the stock hardware and crawl under with a 15mm and 16mm socket and pull one end link off. When you re-connected it, it didn't have line up, you just put the end link back in and tightened it down to line it up. No noise, no problems.

LOL!!! Now thats a statement in a half!! lol looks cool man and im by no means knockin it but, yeah thats what your bump stops are designed to do..if you look in that one pic of the front your CV is at a really bad angle to much of that at right rpms and torque they'll snap like a dry dead twig. all though there are many kinda dumb things on vehicles most have a good reason why they were put there to begin with.
