Sway bar disconnect kit question

Hi everyone, I've got some rocky trails out back and I am interested in getting a "quick" sway bar disconnect kit. My question is how do the extreme jeepers get so much articulation in there front axle?? I unhooked the sway bar today and went riding I noticed only a bit of movement on the front axle. How can i get more? Ive got 33s with a 4" lift. Also if I put this kit will I need to buy anything else.. Ex longer brake hoses? Haha

Any input would help

Cheers

So you disconnected and drove up in a rock or something? I only have a 2.5" suspension lift and 1.25" body lift and have great articulation.

Yeah I only unhooked the one link but I defiantly did not have movement like that. And is your back sway bar off too?

Weird...

Do the other one too and try again. Nope the rear sway bar doesn't actually limit flex like the front ones. In fact you have a higher change of roll over with the rears disconnected.

Did you need to put longer brake lines on or are yours ok?

Not with 2.5" of lift. You'll probably have to with more though.
