I believe you need an 18mm socket. I just ordered quick disconnects and they're supposed to arrive today so ill send pictures when I do it.

Behind your tire, kind of between your bumper and tire, there is a bar that's about 4 inches long that stands vertical between your sway bar and bar connecting to the axle. Just simply unsure with the 18mm socket. Unless I'm mistaken somewhere, its that simple. If its not, I'm about to learn the hard way this afternoon.

As far as zip tying it, just raise up the sway bar and wrap it to whatever you can.

The sway bar link is shown in red in this picture, just inside from the wheel on each side. It's labeled "sway bar link."

You can disconnect the lower portion with a wrench/socket (leaving the top bolt attached), swing it upward, and zip tie it to the sway bar itself. There are a number of companies that make "quick disconnects" that replace the stock sway bar link with a link you can remove by hand.

By the way, you rarely--rarely--need to disconnect your sway bar. Only if your navigating seriously uneven terrain does it become helpful. If you're just going to drive around a basic trail somewhere, I wouldn't bother.

He's right, just keep in mind its when you really need that flex so you can keep all four wheels touching the ground.

Still waiting on the UPS guy....

Like Promised

Like I promised, pictures of the Quicker disconnects by JKS

Tip to those who do this, if your bolts are rusted, use some solvent to get some off first. Holy Hell that was a pain in the ass getting the factory ones off
