CMA_Rider I didnt notice much difference on my TJ with my front removed, but after I removed the rear it was really noticable. On YJ's there will be no real difference, my friends YJ has a 7" lift and 35's and theres very little body roll.

Not much at all. Removing a leaf spring YJ's antiswaybars won't affect things nearly as much as it would a coil spring TJ.

Jerry Bransford Ok, whatever, go ahead and pick a fight or do whatever you want. I'm not here to argue with you or to convince you of anything. I made my point, you don't personally have to like it.

He wasnt asking about swaybars, he just wanted to see the difference in articulation between being disco'd or not and its not abunch of "me too's" posting, their answering his request.

Better yet, leave the rear connected & run a Currie Antirock antiswaybar up front. Great articulation and better control & stability offroad.

Keep in mind that the most astute coil spring wheelers run some form of front and rear antiswaybar. For example, John Currie won the overall US (ARCA) rock crawling championship running f/r Antirock antiswaybars. After that win, he and Gerald Lee of Savvy Offroad won the last two years of the EMC at King of the Hammers running f/r Antirock antiswaybars.

eboven Here's a good comparison for you - I just installed the JKS quicker disconnects and couldn't believe the difference it made.

Swaybars connected, stock ride height:






Swaybar disconnected with a 1" body lift

X2. I used to run disconnects before I installed an Antirock almost 2 years ago. Best of both worlds. Not very good pics but only ones I have.





Here is a pic with the stock front sway bar connected. Seems to be pulling the body over to the side.

It will make a huge difference. And by huge, I mean the juice is definitely worth the squeeze. I've taken pictures to show the travel difference on my suspension with it disconnected...wish I still had those.

Dextreme You get hardly any flex with them connected. Disconnected is like sooooo flexy!
