Are quick disconects worth it?

Are disconnects worth it? Or should I just remove the sway bars completely? Does anybody have any pics of their YJ flexing with sway bars connected and with them disconnected??

i think its more of a personal decission. you might want to try driving without the sway bar in for a little while just to see if you like it. i can't really tell that much of a difference.

The same here. I don't notice any difference with it disconnected. save the money. If you do decide you don't like driving with the sway bar off don't waste the money on any of the solid non quick style ons! I put a pair of procomp ones on my 95' and never could get them off when i went wheelin.

IMO - you'll appreciate your anti-sway bar connected at high speed, especially if you have a heavy load.

Disco's are worth it if you drive on the highway. If you drive around town, probably not a big deal.

itīs only a TJ. but here you can see the different front axle travel with or without connected front sway bar.

connected sway bar (rear tire is still 2-3" from the ground):

flex with disconnected sway bar (look at the better front axle travel):

ditching the swaybars made a huge diff in flex. ditching the trackbars helped even further.
